Nokogiri on Mediatemple gs


#1

Hi there!
Has anyone tried to install the Nokogiri gem on a Mediatemple
Grid-Service?

I got a function in my rails app that needs this library, and when i try
to install it i got the problem:

libxml2 is missing. try ‘port install libxml2’ or ‘yum install libxml2’
*** extconf.rb failed ***

which isn’t true, because:

xxxxx@cl02:~$ whereis libxml2
libxml2: /usr/lib/libxml2.a /usr/lib/libxml2.la /usr/lib/libxml2.so
/usr/include/libxml2

apt-get doesn’t work, because sudo is disabled

so, suggestions?

xxxxx@cl02:~$ whereis libxml2
libxml2: /usr/lib/libxml2.a /usr/lib/libxml2.la /usr/lib/libxml2.so
/usr/include/libxml2

If you’re on Debian/Ubuntu, you’ll also need to install ‘libxml2-dev’

Install libxml2 into your home directory then, and point the gem to
your custom install.

Problem solved.

MT has a set of tuned gems, available list on :
http://gems.mediatemple.net/list.php

so, the issue was resolved with

gem install nokogiri --source=http://gems.mediatemple.net

hope this can help :slight_smile:

of course, mt gs runs on debian, but still i can’t use apt-get because
sudo is disabled.

anyway, i opened a ticket to ask for assistance, hope to have the answer
soon, so i’ll post it here
