DataObjects on Gutsy

Reported by Kieran Huggins | January 4th, 2008 @ 03:02 PM

I already have sqlite3 working with rails in Gutsy, but when i try to install do_sqlite3 it complains that

ruby extconf.rb install do_sqlite3

checking for sqlite3.h... no

*** extconf.rb failed ***

installing do_mysql has a different error:

ruby extconf.rb install do_mysql

extconf.rb:15:in `gets': No such file or directory - install (Errno::ENOENT)

from extconf.rb:15

Cannot find mysql_config in your path. Please enter a location:

    For do_mysql on Gutsy you need to "apt-get install libmysqlclient15-dev".

    Not sure why sqlite3 is failing for you... maybe wycats can help.

    Thanks for the tip on MySQL - worked like a charm.

    After a little poking around I found that while I had the libsqlite3-0 package installed, I did NOT have libsqlite3-dev package (with the required header inside). A quick apt-get put everything riht with the universe.

    Thanks again for your help!
