I'm trying to install FileMagic on Ubuntu. I've done this a number of times on OS X (swapping out apt-get for macports) like so: $ apt-get install file $ curl -O http://grub.ath.cx/filemagic/ruby-filemagic-0.1.1.tar.gz $ tar -xzf ruby-filemagic-0.1.1.tar.gz $ cd ruby-filemagic-0.1.1.tar.gz $ ruby extconf.rb Then make & make install. I can't seem to manage on Ubuntu though. The error I'm getting during extconf is: checking for magic_open() in -lmagic... no *** ERROR: missing required library to compile this module *** extconf.rb failed *** Can anyone help?
