Install fcgi 0.8.8 on Ruby-1.8

Hello,

I have tried to install the gem fcgi-0.8.8 for Ruby on Windows-Xp. I
have installed Fastcgi Development Kit on C:\fcgi directory and i have
compiled the source.

The source for fcgi is in “C:\fcgi\include” directory , and the
libfcgi.dll is in “c:\fcgi\libfcgi\release” directory.

When i try to install fcgi gem for ruby , i get the next error:

C:\Documents and Settings\USER>gem install fcgi -v 0.8.8 –
–with-fcgi-include=c:/fcgi/include
–with-fcgi-lib=c:/fcgi/libfcgi/release --remote
Building native extensions. This could take a while…

Gem files will remain installed in
C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/fcgi-0.8.8 for inspection.
Results logged to
C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/fcgi-0.8.8/ext/fcgi/gem_make.out

C:\Documents and Settings\USER>

So, i think i have missed any other global option for install the gem.I
don’t know why the F_GETFL (function or variable) is undeclared. Can
someone help me?.

Thank you

Didn’t you ask the same question before?

Just install fcgi.rb and use it in its “pure ruby” mode. (That is, if it
can’t load the C extension, it will implement the fcgi protocol in ruby
instead. No C required).

Sorry if I wasn’t being clear. I simply meant copy fcgi.rb to your ruby
lib directory, or into your own application’s lib directory.

Please watch my operating system is Windoes-Xp, and when y tried to
directly execute fcgi.rb in ruby , always i get the next error:

C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/fcgi.rb:11:in `trap’: unsupported signal
SIGPIPE (ArgumentError)
from C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/fcgi.rb:11
from

OK, then that’s a POSIX signal which doesn’t exist in Windows. You’ll
need to trim references to this out of the code.

However it does suggest that fcgi.rb hasn’t been tested much (if at all)
under Windows. Maybe a cygwin build of ruby would be closer to what it
expects.

Otherwise, I suggest you do what most people do nowadays, and run your
web service as a standalone process (using mongrel, thin, unicorn etc)
and proxy to it from your apache instance using mod_proxy. With a
suitable config you can get static assets served directly from apache.

Hello, Brian, thank you by your answer.

I have tried to install over Ruby19, but things have been even worse.So
i have returned to install Ruby-1.86 (In Ruby1.9.1 i can’t start
mongrel_rails and always get a buffer or cache error).

I have observed that one difference between an installed gem and a
uninstalled is that in C.\ruby\lib\ruby\gems\1.8\specifications, in case
of a installed gem exist the corr file to the extension gem and in case
of uninstalled don’t.

Please. if you can show me how to install the pure fcgi.rb in a way that
it work for Apache2.2 in Windows-Xp, i will thank you so much.
