Installing Typo without SQLite?

Is there any way to install Typo without also installing SQLite? I’m
planning to use MySQL to host the database and for reasons I don’t
particularly want to spend any time investigating installing SQLite
fails on
my server:

Could not create Makefile due to some reason, probably lack of
necessary libraries and/or headers. Check the mkmf.log file for more
details. You may need configuration options.

I tried using --ignore-dependencies:

bash-2.05b# gem install typo --ignore-dependencies
Successfully installed typo-4.0.1

But this just postpones the problem - running typo fails with:

    from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:66:in 

active_gem_with_options' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:59:inrequire_gem’
from /usr/local/bin/typo:17

Any suggestions? Or do I just have to bite the bullet and work out how
to
persuade SQLite to install?

Thanks!

You could try ignoring the installer and installing manually.

I use ligHTTPd, so for me the procedure is:

Download the .tgz, unpack. Symlink from public_html/typo to
~/typo-4.0.1/public.

Create typo-4.0.1/config/database.yml and mail.yml as appropriate, and
make sure the web server is configured to find the CGIs in
public_html/typo. (Re)start lighttpd.

With Mongrel it’d be similar, except after creating database.yml you’d
just run script/server I think.

Hello Matthew - didn’t expect to run into another Harlequitter here :slight_smile:

Thanks - I’ll give this a go.

I’d be interested to know why Typo has a dependency on SQLite, when it
doesn’t actually depend on it as such? The installation also brought
mogrel_cluster with it. Which is nice, but not exactly a requirement
either?
