SQLite3 Ruby 2.0 on Windows


#1

After having quite a time working out what needed to be done, I thought
I’d share how I got the sqlite3 gem installed on Windows under Ruby 2.0.

I installed Ruby 2.0 using RubyInstaller for Windows (32 bit).

http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.php/76804/rubyinstaller-2.0.0-p0.exe

Installed in c:\ruby2.0.0p0

I installed the correct DevKit.

http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.php/76805/DevKit-mingw64-32-4.7.2-20130224-1151-sfx.exe

Installed in c:\ruby2.0.0p0\devkit

I created a “knapsack” directory on my C: drive.

C:\knapsack

I downloaded file sqlite-3.7.15.2-x86-windows.tar.lzma and put it in the
knapsack directory.

http://packages.openknapsack.org/sqlite/sqlite-3.7.15.2-x86-windows.tar.lzma

I extracted that file using the bsdtar.exe program located in
devkit\mingw\bin. From the knapsack directory:

C:\knapsack>c:\ruby2.0.0p0\devkit\mingw\bin\bsdtar --lzma -xf
sqlite-3.7.15.2-x86-windows.tar.lzma

That created four directories (bin, include, lib, share)

I then ran gem install as follows:

C:\knapsack>ruby -v
ruby 2.0.0p0 (2013-02-24) [i386-mingw32]

C:\knapsack>gem install sqlite3 --platform=ruby –
–with-opt-dir=C:/Knapsack

C:\knapsack>

And all was well with the world, finally. Whew!

Hope this helps someone else avoid what I had to go through.

If you installed Rail in Windows ever,then such step by step
installation tutorial,if you share,that will be good enough for the
newly started beginner. :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

Thanks

I appear to have fixed this by accident.
It turns out that when I ran “bundle install” to set up the Rails
project, it installed a different version, which is was going to by
default. Uninstalling the unwanted version fixed this.


#6

I followed these steps using Ruby 2.0.0p195 [i386-mingw32] on Windows 7.

When I use ‘require sqlite’ in irb that works:

SQLite3::SQLITE_VERSION
=> “3.7.15.2”

However, when I try to use “rails s” in a rails project folder, I get
this:

C:\rails\timesheet>rails s

Is there something else that needs to be done for this to work within
Rails?

Hi Scott,

I tried what you did, but when I do this part:

C:\knapsack>gem install sqlite3 --platform=ruby –
–with-opt-dir=C:/Knapsack

I still get this:

I’m using ruby 2.0.0p247 (2013-06-27) [i386-mingw32] and my devkit
version is mingw64-32-4.7.2. Could you please help me with this? Thanks


#8

Hi Scott,

I’m using the version rubyinstaller.org recommends, I’m not using the 64
bit Dev kit, in the download page says:

Ruby 2.0.0: mingw64-32-4.7.2
Ruby 2.0.0 x64 (64bits): mingw64-64-4.7.2


#9

I posted a similar fix here:
https://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/4415126#new
Maybe that one will work for you.


#10

Hi Kerry,

You’re using 32-bit Ruby 2.0 and 64 bit Dev Kit?

First I’d try getting on the same version.

Regards


#11

Hi Kerry, ok i see that now.

I needed to read the fine print :wink:

This seems to be the relevant line:

checking for sqlite3.h… *** extconf.rb failed ***

Is this the only version of Ruby you have installed?

What are the contents of your knapsack directory?

ruby 2.0.0p0 (2013-02-24) [i386-mingw32]

Did you extract the tar.lzma file?

In the include directory:

Do you have those files?

#12

Try doing it with the instructions and file I posted here:
https://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/4415126#1113976


#13

Is it just me or does this have nothing whatsoever to do with Ruby 2.x?

The other day I downloaded and installed Ruby 1.9.3-p545 and I ran into
similar installation issues for the sqlite3 gem that I had under Ruby
2.0.

Is this then an issue with the gem itself, regardless of Ruby version?


#14

Followed the instructions but it says sqlite3.h is missing ?
Any help ? Thanks!

I didn’t have any problem with the sqlite3 gem and Ruby 2.1.1 running on
ubuntu 12.04.
