Frustrating Ferret


#1

I stuck in search element problem. I am trying to install ferret on my
window 7. But tried a lot but couldn’t succeed.

I ran following command to install the ferret gem.

gem install ferret
gem install ferret --version (all versions)
gem install ferret -v 0.11.5
gem install ferret -v 0.11.6
gem install ferret -v 0.11.8.4
gem install ferret -v=0.11.6 --platform mswin32

I also changed the devkit, got a updated kit and change requisite path
in fstub

But couldn’t succeed. Always it gives me following error
ERROR: Error installing ferret:
ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

    c:/RailsInstaller/Ruby1.9.2/bin/ruby.exe extconf.rb

make

Please help me.

Any help or suggestion is appreciable.
