Hello everyone, this is my first post, I’m from Costa Rica I’ve been
learning ruby for a couple of months now, now to the point.

I’ve been trying to install the hpricot gem but every time I get this:

Looks like you need to install the Xcode developer tools:

Hope this helps,

It can’t find make. You need to be sure that make or an equivalent is
in
your path. I think OSX uses GCC so it might just be a path issue. I
don’t
have much experience developing on the Mac though so I’m not sure.

Probably I will try that, but I’ve been able to install other gems

Yes; the difference is most likely that those other gems didn’t
include any C/C++ extension code that needed to be compiled. Hpricot
does depend on some C code, so you need the developer tools.

This gem, like a small handful of others, requires compiling some C
extensions.

The xcode stuff should have the tools you need to compile the gems (any
of
them).

Sorry that was poorly worded, like Lyle said you need to be able to
compile
C code for some gems. This can also be a pain for Windows people.

Thank you Lyle and Greg I’ll install the xcode tools
