Fastthread installation fails - debian - w or w/o gem

Hi,

iam trying to install fastthread, but it fails with the message:

Building native extensions. This could take a while…
extconf.rb:1:in `require’: no such file to load – mkmf (LoadError)
from extconf.rb:1

ERROR: While executing gem … (RuntimeError)
ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.
Gem files will remain installed in /var/lib/gems/1.8/gems/
fastthread-0.6.4.1 for inspection.

Results logged to /var/lib/gems/1.8/gems/fastthread-0.6.4.1/ext/
fastthread/gem_make.out

i tried it both with gem install fastthread and by downloading it from
the project
website und install it with ruby setup.rb => Same result

Iam realy new with ruby so i don’t know what to do. google didnt help
me anyway… I’d be happy if someone could give me a hint…

For Debian/Ubuntu, you need to install the ruby1.8-dev package to get
mkmf
(which is a standard part of Ruby, it’s just that Debian broke up the
core
Ruby into shrapnel packages)

HTH,

You will need to install the ruby1.8-dev Debian package in order to be
able to install gems with C extensions (like fastthread).
