Having trouble installing rails - SSL issues

I'm running into this same issue on a SUSE 10.1 box. In looking around, it appears that libopenssl-ruby is a debian-only package, but I'm kinda new to linux so I'm probably missing something.

Any help is much appreciated.

Current Progress: Installed Ruby Installed RubyGem installed openssl

The output of 'sudo gem install rails --include-dependencies' or 'sudo gem install rails -y' is:

Bulk updating Gem source index for: http://gems.rubyforge.org ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::Exception)     SSL is not installed on this system

Thanks, Smitty

After a little further investigation I figured out that I needed to install libopenssl-dev (or devel). After installing that, then going into the ruby source /ext/oppenssl and running:

ruby extconf.rb make make install

I was able then to run:

sudo gem install rails --include-dependencies

It seems to have installed successfully:

rails -v

Rails 2.0.1

Thanks anyway...
