The list that this is posted to is fxruby-users at rubyforge.org. I don't
see any other list that I might post this on. I didn't realize that
fxruby was a required install in addition to libGUIb and foxGUIb. So I
thank you. I still have a problem, though, in that it didn't install
correctly, and I can't tell why. I did the following:
[root at erie ~]# gem update fxruby --include-dependencies
Updating installed gems...
Need to update 1 gems from http://gems.rubyforge.org
Attempting remote update of fxruby
Select which gem to install for your platform (x86_64-linux)
1. fxruby 1.6.6 (ruby)
Building native extensions. This could take a while...
*** extconf.rb failed ***
Could not create Makefile due to some reason, probably lack of
necessary libraries and/or headers. Check the mkmf.log file for more
details. You may need configuration options.
Provided configuration options:
ERROR: While executing gem ... (RuntimeError)
ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.
Gem files will remain installed in
/usr/lib64/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/fxruby-1.6.6 for inspection.

When I did
[root at erie ~]# find / -name mkmf.log
No result was returned. gem_make.out is empty. The gem files are
present. Can you suggest what I can do now? (I'm using the x64 version
of Fedora Core 6, if that helps.)
