RE: SQLite3-ruby failed on FC3 [ reply ]

Actually, I found a hint from another topic on Solaris, I applied that and worked ok,

Here is what i did:
gem install sqlite3-ruby NOTE: (Error occurred while installing sqlite3-ruby) This didn't work so I downloaded fresh source using wget
untar the file (sqlite3-ruby-1.1.0.tar.gz)
cd to sqlite3-ruby-1.1.0/ext/sqlite3_api/
Edit extconf.rb
vi /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/sqlite3-ruby-1.1.0/ext/sqlite3_api/extconf.rb
do the following:
change if have_header( “sqlite3.h”) and have_library( “sqlite3”, “sqlite3_open” ) to if have_header( “sqlite3.h” ) and have_library( “rt” ) and have_library( “sqlite3”, “sqlite3_open” )

run extconf.rb
cd .. back to main sqlite3-ruby-1.1.0
now run setup.rb using ruby command
ruby setup.rb [this will install the sqlite3-ruby now]
