    Error while installing Ferret

    Trying to install Ferret. Ran into this Error in the Terminal (see attached PNG for a screenshot). Does this mean that Ferret's already installed on my machine? Any insight or help is much appreciated.

    You're probably on a binary distribution such as RedHat, ubuntu, debian, etc. These distributions, in order to save space, often leave out header files, used in building things from source.

    In order to solve this, you'll want to install a package along the lines of "ruby-devel". If you let me know your server's operating system I can direct you to the proper package.

    Sorry for not putting that in the OP. I'm running OSX 10.5 Leopard.

    After further research, it looks like you need to install the Xcode (Apple developer tools) package. You can find information on installing Xcode here:

    This was shown by many blogs to solve the headers issue. Let me know if it helps.

    Hey Chris thanks for the info, I have XCode already installed though, and i actually had Ferret installed too, and what I was trying to do worked without a hitch. (I'm new to this, can you tell? Haha) Anyhow thanks for the help.
