Hello,

I upgraded to Ruby 1.9.1 and I was trying to install Mongrel: gem
install mongrel

I got the following error:

ERROR:  Error installing mongrel:
  ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

/usr/local/bin/ruby extconf.rb

Gem files will remain installed in
/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/mongrel-1.1.4 for inspection.
Results logged to
/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/mongrel-1.1.4/ext/http11/gem_make.out



Any ideas?

Thanks,

Tam

try their subversion trunk? for mysql you could try mysqlplus (known to
be 1.9 compat--a fork of the normal mysql).
