Is this a known-bad combination? I'm installing onto Debian Etch, and: $ ruby -v ruby 1.8.5 (2006-08-25) [x86_64-linux] When I gem install fastthread, I get these: In file included from fastthread.c:12: /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/x86_64-linux/ruby.h:31:21: error: stdlib.h: No such file or directory /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/x86_64-linux/ruby.h:35:21: error: string.h: No such file or directory /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/x86_64-linux/ruby.h:45:19: error: stdio.h: No such file or directory /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/x86_64-linux/ruby.h:67:20: error: alloca.h: No such file or directory ... (many more errors follow) ... make clean Successfully installed fastthread-1.0 $ irb irb(main):001:0> require 'rubygems';require 'fastthread' LoadError: no such file to load -- fastthread from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:in `gem_original_require' from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:in `require' from (irb):1 I've probably forgotten something obvious, but I can't see what. Anyone got any clues?
