    Cannot install sqlite3 on OSX Lion

    I don't like my first post to be a question but after many hours staring at google search results, I have reached a dead end.

    The original problem is that I received the following error when installing Sql Lite (sqlite3-ruby):

    Code:
    ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension
    I've put the full error message at the bottom...

    I have since followed various advice including:
    • adding --with path to the installer
    • getting a list of available versions and installing a specific one
    • using the which command to get the correct location for the --with command
    • several posts advised to just work through the steps again, i've done this several times
    • I even tried to cheat by using the mysql gem (which installed first time), however, when I came to start mongrel it then complained about sqlite being missing


    I am following the Simply Rails 2 Book and have had problems at almost every step, I've put most of this down to Lion as the book does not cover that. But I am now at a point where I cannot continue.

    Can anyone point me towards EITHER getting SQL lite working OR completing the book with mysql.

    *Update*

    I have given up ....

    ...for now.

    Followed every bit of advice I could find, and always end up back with the same error.

    Have got it working with MySQL for now as I want to get started.

    Really suspect this is something to do with lion and versions but just haven't figured it out yet. If anyone else does find a solution, I'd be interested to hear it, but for now I'm plodding along with MySQL.

    Did you ever find a solution? I am having the same problem. Updated to Lion - dealt with issue after issue but I'm at a dead stop with installing sqlite3-ruby. Our errors are identical. Ugh.
