how come "gem install sqlite3-ruby" will fails on PC?
this is related to Ruby on Rails:
I wonder why
gem install sqlite3-ruby
will fail on a PC with Vista? (probably XP too)
when i do a search on google for sqlite3-ruby, I see that 1.2.4 was
actually done in August 2008.
So does that mean for 8 months (from
2008-08 to 2009-04), it was breaking all people using a PC?
turns out that it needs to be
gem install -v1.2.3 sqlite3-ruby
can't it simply show a message saying you need 1.2.3 for a PC? or show a
selection list like on http://agilo.us/2009/03/15/rails-on-windows/ ?
that's kind of weird...
this is the error message for "gem install sqlite3-ruby":
C:\ror>gem install sqlite3-ruby
Building native extensions. This could take a while...
ERROR: Error installing sqlite3-ruby:
ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.
c:/ruby/bin/ruby.exe extconf.rb install sqlite3-ruby

'nmake' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
Gem files will remain installed in
.2.4 for inspection.

Yes it would be nice if a GEM needing a certain dll or using a certain command would fail with a "you need version XX of XX" or "missing required XX" message.
It would save a lot of headaches and the need to search and puzzle out the solution.
