Hey Guys, so i recently started playing around with ROR, however
whenever i
try to install gems i get this message

ERROR: Error installing pg:
ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

    /Applications/rubystack-1.9.3-22/ruby/bin/ruby extconf.rb

checking for pg_config… yes
Using config values from
*** extconf.rb failed ***
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.

Provided configuration options:
try_do': The compiler failed to generate an executable file. (RuntimeError) You have to install development tools first. from /Applications/rubystack-1.9.3-22/ruby/lib/ruby/1.9.1/mkmf.rb:461:intry_link0’
from /Applications/rubystack-1.9.3-22/ruby/lib/ruby/1.9.1/mkmf.rb:476:in
try_link' from extconf.rb:39:in

Gem files will remain installed in
for inspection.

You need development tools installed (c compiler etc). Assuming you’re
on OS X this means installing Xcode and from within Xcode installing the
command line tools (on mavericks you run xcode-select --install )
