Rb-appscript installation on MAC OS 10.6.3 (Snow Leopard)

Hello,

I am new user working on MAC OS and try to install rb-appscrip-0.6.0. I
want Autoit functionality on the MAC OS with using rb-appscript.

Ruby Version on MAC OS is:
ruby 1.8.7 (2009-06-12 patchlevel 174) [i686-darwin9.7.0]

Gem Version on MAC OS:
1.6.1

then i go to the destination where i downloaded the rb-appscript file
and start installing it using the commands:

  1. ruby extconf.rb
    Output:
    create F:/ExpressKCS/APPLE_SCIPTS/rb-appscript-0.6.0/src/osx_ruby.h …
    create F:/ExpressKCS/APPLE_SCIPTS/rb-appscript-0.6.0/src/osx_intern.h

    creating Makefile
  2. Make
    Output: cc -dynamic -bundle -undefined suppress -flat_namespace -o
    ae.bundle rbae.o SendThreadSafe.o -L. -L/usr/local/lib -L. -framework
    Carbon -framework ApplicationServices -lruby -lpthread -ldl -lobjc
    ld: warning: in /usr/local/lib/libruby.dylib, file was built for i386
    which is not the architecture being linked (x86_64)
    ld: in /usr/local/lib/libxml2.2.dylib, file was built for i386 which is
    not the architecture being linked (x86_64)
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    make: *** [ae.bundle] Error 1
    and not able to install it.

Please let me know from the basic how to install it on MAC OS.

Thanks in Advance.

This says that you’re trying to link a 32 bit library against a 64 bit
build. That’s gonna be a problem. I’m not sure why you’re manually
installing it at all, after reporting your rubygems version. Instead,
try installing the gem:

9999 % sudo gem install rb-appscript
Password:
Updating installed gems

Fetching: rb-appscript-0.6.0.gem (100%)

extconf.rb
sample
README
gem_make.out
src

rb-appscript.gemspec
test

After check the list i tried to build the gem using gemspec:
LALIT-JAINs-MacBook:rb-appscript-0.6.0 lalitjain$ sudo gem build
rb-appscript.gemspec
Password:
[rb-appscript.gemspec] isn’t a Gem::Specification (NilClass instead).
ERROR: While executing gem … (NoMethodError)
undefined method `mark_version’ for nil:NilClass

Instructions are here:

http://appscript.sourceforge.net/rb-appscript/install.html

and here:

<http://www.apeth.com/rbappscript/01starting.html#installationofrbappscr
ipt>

And if none of that works, you’ll get much better help posting on the
rb-appscript list, which is here:
