Sqlite3

If I install sqlite3-ruby using gem, I get this error…

LoadError: no such file to load – sqlite3/database

I saw this post…

http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/144703#641008

And it seems that this is most commonly a problem if people don’t have
the sqlite3 libraries and headers installed when they build the
sqlite3-ruby module. I’ve got those.

“gem install sqlite3-ruby” only populates

/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/sqlite3-ruby-1.2.2

but if I download the gem from rubyforge, and build and install it by
hand, it puts stuff in both…

/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/sqlite3-ruby-1.2.2
/usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/sqlite3

and creates /usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/i686-linux/sqlite3_api.so…
which takes of the “LoadError: no such file to load…” problem.

Any ideas why installing sqlite3 via gem doesn’t work, but building it
by hand does?

What platform are you running this on?

We’re using a locally developed LFS based linux distribution. No easy
access to widely used package management (yum, apt, rpm).

I do have ruby 1.8.6 (not p230 - that was causing issues). Linux
2.6.23.1, glibc 2.3.6, sqlite 3.5.9 installed from source.

As far as I know, the other gems we’re using are working ok.

Oh yeah… this is Rails 2.1.

when you built the gem did you tell it where to find the sqlite
headers. Did it print the ‘building native extension’ blurb ?

Yup…

gem install sqlite3-ruby

Building native extensions. This could take a while…
Successfully installed sqlite3-ruby-1.2.2
1 gem installed
Installing ri documentation for sqlite3-ruby-1.2.2…
Installing RDoc documentation for sqlite3-ruby-1.2.2…

Hhmm … it seems like something is missing to me with the install.
I’m not sure if there is something ruby might be missing?

That specific error happened to me on Ubuntu, and I had to install
libsqlite3-ruby. I know you don’t have access to packages, but maybe you
can look into that package’s content to figure out what you need.

I find I get a /more/ complete installation when I install 1.2.1 via
gem, but still not functional.

The only method that really seems to work for me is to download the gem
from rubyforge and to build and install it by hand. :\

sqlite3-ruby (1.2.2)

An older version seems to work.

gem uninstall sqlite3-ruby

gem install sqlite3-ruby -v=1.2.1

Thanks for the suggestions! On a Mac (10.4.11) I was having this
issue with a new Rails 2.1 app. Downgrading to 1.2.1 worked
perfectly.
