New to the RoR world view and just learning about gems - I’ve hit a
snag installing two separate gems that I can’t seem to get past with
one of them.
My environment is osX 10.5.4 on a ppc processor. I have gcc 4.1 (and
related tools) installed as well as mysql-5.0.51a. ruby --version =>
ruby 1.8.6 (2008-03-03 patchlevel 114) [universal-darwin9.0] and rails
–version => Rails 2.1.0.
My problem has been with the RMagick and MySQL gems, and is related to
these gems attempting to build for both the ppc and 386 architectures
via --arch options for both appearing in the gcc command that is
generated during the install process.
I was able to step around the problem with RMagick by editing the
options out of the generated makefile, doing the make directly. Not
too satisfying but it did build, test, and install. No such luck with
the MySQL gem however.
Any thoughts or suggestions? Where / how is the makefile generated?
Who decided that I wanted both architectures build for a ppc only
environment? Is it even possible to build a foreign arch without a
thanks in advance
