[fxruby-users] Problem using foxGUIb

I, too, installed fxruby as a gem on a 64-bit machine running Fedora
Core 6. I have not yet been able to run Fox with Ruby and get the same
error message. Following Ernie's lead, I modified foxGUIb.rb, adding
It appears that I crashing on the first code in this file
puts "please install libGUIb!!"
I don't know enough about this code to know what FOXGUIB_LIBRARY
contains, or what it's supposed to contain, but I do know that I have a
successful install of the library.
Can someone advise me of the next step in resolving this problem? Thanks.
