I need to install the 0.2.0 FFI gem for MRI on a win32 system. I have
thus far been unable to get it to compile. The issue is with nmake:
C:/atb/ruby/bin/ruby.exe extconf.rb install ffi-0.2.0.gem checking for ffi_closure_alloc() in ffi.lib... no creating Makefile creating extconf.h nmake Microsoft (R) Program Maintenance Utility Version 8.00.50727.42 Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. makefile(181) : fatal error U1052: file '$(srcdir)/ffi.mk' not found Stop. Gem files will remain installed in C:/atb/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/ffi-0.2.0 for inspection. Results logged to C:/atb/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/ffi-0.2.0/ext/gem_make.out
I have found various posts on the net complaining of the same problem
but no actual solution to it. Could somebody please provide me with
instructions on how to install this on win32 or where I can get a
precompiled win32 gem?
Thanks in advance for your help.
P.S. I will also eventually need to install the same version on Jruby
