Hi, I'm trying to install RForum in as part of my messing around with
Ruby/RoR, however I seem to have some problems. I've got the latest
version of Rails through Gems and I've unpacked the RForum source to
C:\rails\forum however when I run ruby script/create_db I get an error,
pasted below.

C:\rails\forum>ruby script/create_db
c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:18:in
`require__': No such file to load -- iconv (Mi
ssingSourceFile)

Can anyone give me any help? Have I missed something really obvious?

Hi,
I'm also new to RoR and haven't managed to install RForum yet on a Win2k
machine. I'm also stuck on step 4 (step 4 of the more recently updated
online README file, not the one included in the tar 'rforum' file).

Through searches I have discovered the following:
You need two missing files (missing I now suspect from the one-click
installer of Ruby - if I'm wrong please someone correct me. Should we
install a different  Ruby package?). The two files are iconv.so and
iconv.dll.
For the first file, you can find directions on how to get it here:
http://www.loglibrary.com/show_page/view/62?EndTim...
The second file can be downloaded here:
http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?iconv

This thread might also possibly be helpful to you:
http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/45367#9711
I'm stuck on this stage since I get an error message from "rake
migrate".

Being a new user myself, I cannot guarrantee that the above info is
truly relevant, so this is a call for help too. Can anyone give us help
in any form regarding the installation process (especially step 4 for
me)?
