Hi all I'm trying to follow this guide: http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/RailsOnSUSE And I'm having problem with installing fcgi using gems (I'm logged in as root): koelsch:/home/josh # gem install fcgi Attempting local installation of 'fcgi' Local gem file not found: fcgi*.gem Attempting remote installation of 'fcgi' Building native extensions. This could take a while... ERROR: While executing gem ... (RuntimeError) ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension. Gem files will remain installed in /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/fcgi-0.8.7 for inspection. ruby extconf.rb install fcgi\nchecking for fcgiapp.h... no checking for fastcgi/fcgiapp.h... no Results logged to /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/fcgi-0.8.7/ext/fcgi/gem_make.out In addition I wasn't able yet to install apache2-mod_fastcgi, but I don't think this is responsible for this behavior? Thanks for help. Josh

You can download this from http://www.fastcgi.com/#TheDevKit and build it (or else your base system may have this available as a pre-built binary) I believe the ruby fcgi package does include a pure-ruby implementation, which it's supposed to use as a fallback, but I suspect the gem packaging hasn't allowed for this. > In addition I wasn't able yet to install apache2-mod_fastcgi, but I > don't think this is responsible for this behavior? No it's unrelated. I recommend you use apache2-mod_fcgid though anyway; this is a drop-in replacement for mod_fastcgi which is actually being maintained. Brian.
