Problems installing mongrel in Ruby 1.9.1 on Mac OS

Hello guys,

When I run ³gem install mongrel², I get the following error:

Building native extensions. This could take a while…
ERROR: Error installing mongrel:

Hi, you might want to try installing Thin and use it in place of
Mongrel:

sudo gem install thin

Good luck,

-Conrad

Hi
check the instructions on my blog
rubynyc.wordpress.com it has many other gems fixes for 1.9.1

you can install thin server, but you won’t be able to see the log like
in mongrel
you will lose the debugger, since its not compatible with 1.9 yet

As a note, this works on all OS versions (windows/linux/mac).

Just browse to those listings (the notes above are for linux but you can
translate them easy enough. Just find the files and change the lines as
noted above, and it will work for you.

I’ve accomplished this on Windows Vista, Linux CentOS 5, Linux Ubuntu
Hardy, and my friend has it working on the latest MAC OS.

To fix this:

  1. cd /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/mongrel-1.1.5/ext/http11
  2. sudo vi / mate on http11.c and:
    replace line 77 with
    for(ch = RSTRING_PTR(f), end = ch + RSTRING_LEN(f); ch < end; ch++) {
    replace line 172 with
    colon = strchr(RSTRING_PTR(temp), ‘:’);
    replace line 174 with
    rb_hash_aset(req, global_server_name, rb_str_substr(temp, 0, colon -
    RSTRING_PTR(temp)));
    replce line 176,177
    rb_str_substr(temp, colon - RSTRING_PTR(temp)+1,
    RSTRING_LEN(temp)));
    replace lines 298 299
    dptr = RSTRING_PTR(data);
    dlen = RSTRING_LEN(data);
  3. save the file, close the vi / textmate
  4. sudo ruby extconf.rb && sudo make && sudo make install
  5. cd …/…/lib/mongrel
    (or the full path
    “/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/mongrel-1.1.5/lib/mongrel”
  6. mate / sudo vi handlers.rb
  7. fix the case statements in
    On lines 208-212, change instances of “: false” to “then false”

I tried this and it seems to have worked for me. Thank god to whoever
posted this!

Thanks for the hard part! I have assembled your fix into a unified
patch that can be easily applied to mongrel-1.1.5:

Hope this helps.
