Linux Gem Install Problem [Fixed]

November 29, 2010

If you’re trying to install gems on a Linux or Linux server distro, you may encounter an error like “ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.” Luckily, this is very easy to fix.

apt-get install ruby1.8-dev

Replace the “1.8” with the version of Ruby you’d like to use.

That’s it!
