Problem with Gem

I am trying to install support for SQLite using Gem but I get this error
"Building native extensions. This could take a while…
ERROR: While executing gem … (Gem::Installer::ExtensionBuildError)
ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

ruby extconf.rb install sqlite3-ruby
can’t find header files for ruby."
I do have ruby.h installed on my system but gem can not seem to find it.
Any suggestions?

What does this say:

ruby -rrbconfig -e ‘puts File.join(Config::CONFIG[“rubylibdir”],
Config::CONFIG[“arch”], “ruby.h”)’

I have the same problem while installing fxruby
gem install fxruby

gem needs to be more idiot-friendly. I do not wake up a genius. I
become one over the course of several cups of coffee, on days when I’m
lucky.

If you have something constructive to contribute, please do so.

If you have found a bug, please file it in the tracker.

Empty statements of frustration do not help me make RubyGems better.

Do you have that file?

What other .h files exist in /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/i386-linux?

Can you attach gem_make.out?

I did. I sent Chad & Jim a patch that allows you to require symbols
and arrays. It was nifty.

Admittedly, though, that doesn’t help here at all. My bad.

OK, ok.
