Mongrel install problem


I’m having difficulties getting mongrel running on my Debian Etch
machine. It seems to install and is listed with my other gems, but
things like…
“mongrel_rails start …”
… are not recognised.

Perhaps this is something to do with the file “lib” not being found in
the install process:

ruby extconf.rb install mongrel --include-dependencies
checking for main() in -lc… no
creating Makefile


make install

make clean
Successfully installed mongrel-1.1.1
Successfully installed fastthread-1.0.1
Installing ri documentation for mongrel-1.1.1…
Installing ri documentation for fastthread-1.0.1…
File not found: lib

I’ve done the usual Googling for solutions to this, but no luck so
far. Any help would be appreciated.



I had the same issue on Etch, try adding ‘/var/lib/gems/1.8/bin/’ to
your path - see if that works.

You might be interested in using my (unofficial) apt repository, so
you have your Debian installation as clean as possible:

deb etch mongrel

I’m currently using it in my production server.
