Instant Client: Connecting Oracle and Mac


I am having a terrible time installing Instant Client to connect my Mac and an Oracle db.

I am using the following instructions:

All goes seemingly well until the Compile the ruby-oci8 library section.

ruby setup.rb config

returns the following error message:

Downloads/ruby-oci8-1.0.3/ext/oci8/extconf.rb:24 'system /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/bin/ ruby /Users/lynnlobash/Downloads/ruby-oci8-1.0.3/ext/oci8/extconf.rb ' failed Try 'ruby setup.rb --help' for detailed usage.

Anyone have any experience with this?

Thank you, Lynn Lobash
