Getting rails installed on my mac

I keep getting an error when I attempt to install rails. Yes,
command-line tools is installed.

$ sudo gem install rails
Password:
Building native extensions. This could take a while…
ERROR: Error installing rails:

Install xcode.

I feel like I should elaborate. Install xcode and if you already have
it, link llvm over. sudo ln -s /usr/bin/llvm-gcc-4.2 /usr/bin/gcc-4.2.
I could have the version strings wrong since I don’t work on a Mac
full time, I rarely get on a Mac but that’s what I remember from
earlier this year.

I appreciate the quick response, but as I mentioned in my initial
question, commandline-tools (the suite in xcode that is relevant) is
installed. In addition, xcode is also installed. However I am still
getting the afore mentioned error.

That worked great Glen! Thanks so much for your help

Hi,

I recall that recent Xcode version does not include required command
line
tools.
Try installing osx-gcc from github.

Perfect Todd. I did miss that part. Thank you

In addition to installing the command line tools, you have to accept the
Xcode license agreement, too. If you haven’t done this manually, then
RVM
fails without giving you any really useful information about the cause
of
the failure.

Try running the following, and agreeing to the license:

sudo xcodebuild -license

After that, RVM should be able to compile recent rubies and native
extensions properly.
