Having trouble installing Devise gem on Mac, please help!

Hi All,

I can't seem to do any sort of Bundle Install specifically for the
Devise gem because of an error...
"Can't find native extension..." associated with bcrypt-ruby. I have
read around and the most common fix seems to be to update Xcode.
Unfortunately I am unable to locate the right update (I'm running
Leopard). The only thing that I can find on the Apple Developer site
is the update for Snow Leopard.

Please offer suggestions.

Many Thanks,

Steve

If you've already got Xcode installed, you might want to run Software
Update and see if you get the update.

Also, generally, there's no reason *not* to upgrade from Leopard to Snow
Leopard...so why are you still running Leopard? :slight_smile:

Please offer suggestions.

There are older versions on https://connect.apple.com (you may have to
register for a free account). Alternatively a version of the developer
tools will be on the disks that came with your mac (whichever version
was current at the time)

I was able to fix the problem by downloading an older version as
suggested by Frederick.

Thanks for the help.
