I installed ferret and it cleaned me out!!! I do the following: __________________________ # gem install ferret Need to update 4 gems from http://gems.rubyforge.org .... complete Select which gem to install for your platform (i386-linux) 1. ferret 0.11.4 (ruby) 2. ferret 0.11.4 (mswin32) 3. ferret 0.11.3 (ruby) 4. ferret 0.11.2 (ruby) 5. Skip this gem 6. Cancel installation > 3 Building native extensions. This could take a while... ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::Installer::ExtensionBuildError) ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension. ruby extconf.rb install ferret can't find header files for ruby. _________________________________________ Then I try to uninstall and i get the following: __________________________________________ gem uninstall ferret ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::InstallError) Unknown gem ferret-> 0 ___________________________________________ Then I try to rake my db and i get errors ____________________________________________ $ rake db:migrate (in /home/drhenner/eggpad) rake aborted! no such file to load -- ferret_ext ____________________________________________ I have no idea what i can do to just uninstall ferret from my system. I would prefer to have it work but at the very least i don't want it to stop all future work. I installed 0.11.4 first and i got the same problem. I manually removed all the files and directories in ruby/gems/1.8/gems/ferret-0.11.4/ it didnt help at all. This has to be my worst experience with a rubygem EVER. Everything always runs smooth up until now. What are the ruby header files by the way???
