Gem install sqlite3-ruby still not working

Dear all,
I am trying to install ruby on rails…but the sqlite3-ruby part
has been the trouble giver. I read almost every trouble shoot given in
various forums in internet but nothing worked?

I am attaching the output of the command here too. Please help me.

sudo gem install sqlite-ruby-2.2.3.gem
Building native extensions. This could take a while…

What did you try? Have you also tried installing the sqlite3 header
files?

Which operating system are you using and which version of rails?

Colin

I am using ubuntu 10.04.
$ ruby -v
ruby 1.8.7 (2009-06-12 patchlevel 174) [i686-linux]

$rails -v
Rails 2.2.3

These are the additional header files I installed already
$ sudo apt-get install libsqlite3-0 libsqlite3-dev

I am behind a bad proxy, so i downloaded all gem files and installed
locally. This sqlite-ruby-2.2.3.gem also, I downloaded and am trying to
install locally.

Thanks,

I don’t know whether it may be the problem but have you also installed
sqlite3?
sudo apt-get install sqlite3

Otherwise you could use apt-file search to find which package should
supply sqlite.h

Colin

I already have it.
$ sudo apt-get install sqlite3
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
sqlite3 is already the newest version.

Otherwise you could use apt-file search to find which package should
supply sqlite.h

How do I do this? ( I am newbie to ubuntu…please bare with me)

@ Peter,
In my rails project directory, where should I search for gemfile,
gemfile.lock? can you explain ?

while Installing RoR, I have to sqlite3, and then link this to RoR
using
sqlite3-ruby. So, The first step is fine…second gives me this error!.

Is there any way I can use some other database software other than
sqlite3
and get rid of the error( and hope to get no more errors)

Strange …

On my system (Ubuntu 11.10 here), everything points to sqlite3 (THREE
that
is) .

So, I get sqlite3.h (THREE) from here:

~/b$ dpkg -L libsqlite3-dev
/.
/usr
/usr/include
/usr/include/sqlite3.h
/usr/include/sqlite3ext.h

But, the OP seems to require sqlite.h (without 3)

checking for sqlite.h… no

and that is indeed found in a different package:

$ apt-file search sqlite.h

libsqlite0-dev: /usr/include/sqlite.

that was not mentioned in the apt-get install list of the OP.

So, why is the OP trying to install a version of sqlite that
seems to be older than sqlite3 ??

@Libber could you please post the Gemfile and Gemfile.lock (if
available)
from the root directory of your Rails project.

Why are you caring for the ‘sqlite-ruby’ gem ? Why not simply

gem ‘sqlite3’

in your Gemfile that seems to bring little trouble to users on Ubuntu
10.04
(I have used it there for many cases and never had trouble with it).

Hope This Helps (not entirely sure, actually …)

Sorry, I had not seen you are using the older Rails version 2.2.3 …
There is no Gemfile and Gemfile.lock
there by default.

You could use

gem ‘mysql2’, ‘~>0.3.10’ # Ubuntu : libmysql-ruby1.9.1
libmysqlclient-dev
gem ‘pg’ # Ubuntu : libpq-dev

but those will have other set-up issue that you need to handle.

@collin:
Wonderful, I was literally crying for the past 20 days in
trying
to install this sqlite3-ruby. The whole mistake is I should have used
“sqlite3-ruby” instead of “sqlite-ruby”. Thank you very much.

Thanks a lot once again…

It is working …yureka…:slight_smile:

I think the problem may be that you are trying to install sqlite-ruby
instead of sqlite3-ruby

Colin

Sorry for that…

A special thanks to Peter V. also.

Thanks should go to Peter V. also, it was his pointing out
that sqlite.h should not be used by sqlite3 that made me notice your
error.

For some reason, curl does not work when we are behind a proxy. I
actually
started my project with the same link you gave. After two days without
result, I switched to the present way…

No prob, you’re welcome :slight_smile:

Still, is this a new application you are starting (since you are
now setting up the first database connection)?

Why not use the easy default Rails 3 set-up. Setting it up on
Ubuntu 10.xy, 11.xy is a breeze [0].

You will have more trouble getting support on this list for
a 2.2.x application than a 3.x application. Also, I a doubt
if security updates are still supported for 2.2.x Rails apps …

HTH,

Peter

[0] one of the many tutorials for Ruby on Linux (I wrote it)
http://rails.vandenabeele.com/blog/2011/11/26/installing-ruby-and-rails-with-rvm-on-ubuntu-11-dot-10/

@Peter,
Thanks for those links. The whole problem with proxy was that
my
password contains special characters(it is must to have atleast one
special
character), Now I figured out a way to change the password and without a
special character. This worked and in the next computer I am running rvm
with ease… and rails >3.x…

Thanks

Do you mean the curl to download rvm ?

I assume you know that there are ways on Linux to set proxy settings
system
wide
(I don’t know much detail, but that problem should be possible to
resolve).

Specifically for rvm, this page could be relevant:

http://beginrescueend.com/workflow/proxy/
“Installing RVM behind a proxy”

I actually started my project with the same link you gave. After two days
without result, I switched to the present way…

Maybe I misunderstood your problem. Could you explain a little more
detail
please.
If needed, I can improve the text to discuss this problem and the
solution.

And … even without rvm, why not use Rails 3.1 ? Why is the proxy not a
problem
for Rails 2.2.x and it is a problem for Rails 3.1?

Sorry for all the questions, but I am curious what is the real problem.

Peter
