Ruby, bundle install –without development test might be troublesome in FreeBSD

I’m setting up a new Redmine installation on a FreeBSD server. I’m having trouble with:

# bundle install --without development test
Installing sqlite3 (1.3.7) with native extensions 
Gem::Installer::ExtensionBuildError: ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

Turns out I have to install the sqlite3 gem by giving bundle a hint on where to find the sqlite3.h file .

# gem install sqlite3 -- --with-sqlite3-include=/usr/local/include
Building native extensions.  This could take a while...
Successfully installed sqlite3-1.3.7

Redmine 1.4. upgrade on FreeBSD 8.1 release

I stumbled over a broken Redmine 1.3 install on a server this morning. The installation is broken in 1.3 related to rubytree something something … I’m kind of a noob in FreeBSD,  and even more of a noob  in regard to Ruby on rails applications… today was my first look at anything related to that stuff. I’m uppgrading to Redmine 1.4 since according to maillinglists it should fix the rubytree problem, so I’m following .


rake generate_session_store
an error occured while installing sqlite3 (1.3.6), and Bundler cannot continue.
Make sure that `gem install sqlite3 -v '1.3.6'` succeeds before bundling.

Your bundle is complete! Use `bundle show [gemname]` to see where a bundled gem is installed.

Got it to work in the end, and got a small insight in Rugy on Rails, and gem install stuff .
Gem install help
Note: during Redmine upgrade rake told me I had to do a bundle install –without development test, and I ran into ‘command not found’ which was because the ‘bundle’ command was a Ruby gem, and those gem’s wasn’t in my path, I had to locate the ‘bundle’ gem, and call it with an absolute path (or fix my PATH variable) .

Btw: they say that “UNIX Is User Friendly. It’s Just Selective About Who Its Friends Are.”, I have a feeling Unix hasn’t selected me yet …
