Difficulty installing ruby gem termios

Hello,
I’ve just put a fresh install of kubuntu 6.06.1i on my computer. I’m
trying to install the ruby gem termios-0.9.4, with gem 0.9.0 and ruby
1.8.4. I’ve used the following commands to no avail.
sudo gem install termios --include-dependencies – --build-flags
–with-opt-dir=/usr
sudo gem install termios --include-dependencies

I receive the same error in my mkmf.log file every time. Here’s the my
mkmf.log file from one run:
have_header: checking for termios.h… -------------------- no

“gcc -E -I. -I/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/i486-linux -I/usr/include -Wall -g -O2
-fPIC conftest.c -o conftest.i”
checked program was:
/* begin /
#include <termios.h>
/
end */


I’ve used adept (the graphical package manager for kde) to install
libtermios-ruby, libtermios-ruby1.8, ruby1.8, ruby1.8-dev, and
libc6-dev. My mkmf.log shows that I’m missing the termios.h file. I
can see that I have a termios.h file located in /usr/include though,
from the results above, I am assuming it is not the correct one. I’ve
searched google for termios.h, the package contents for ubuntu for
termios.h
(http://packages.ubuntu.com/cgi-bin/search_contents.pl?word=termios.h&searchmode=searchword&case=insensitive&version=dapper&arch=i386&page=1&number=50)
and I have no clue what to try next.

Any ideas? Am I missing something simple here?
Thanks in advance,
Jonathan

For future reference, this is the error one gets when gcc is not
installed. blush

The proper solution to this problem would thus be to install the package
“build-essential” which pulls in GCC as well as other important tools
like
make and the linker.
