Problem configuring database with rubyonrails.

Hi,

I was trying to configure sqlite3 as a backend to work with rubyonrails.

First i did yum install sqlite and got the package installed.
Then i did .I got an error message:

Building native extensions. This could take a while…
ERROR: Error installing sqlite:
ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

/usr/bin/ruby extconf.rb install sqlite
can’t find header files for ruby.

Gem files will remain installed in /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/sqlite-2.0.1 for inspection.
Results logged to /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/sqlite-2.0.1/ext/gem_make.out

Then i did and got an error message:

WARNING: Installing to ~/.gem since /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8 and
/usr/bin aren’t both writable.
WARNING: You don’t have /home/yevlempy/.gem/ruby/1.8/bin in your PATH,

I am new to rubyonrails if anyone can help.I use fedora as linux distro.

Thanks,

/usr/bin/ruby extconf.rb install sqlite3-ruby
can't find header files for ruby.

That is the right gem. You need to install the package that has the
ruby development headers. Often called something like ruby-dev or ruby-
devel (probably also for sqlite3)
