Problem Installing RMagick with Instant Rails on Windows

I'm running Instant Rails 1.4 on Windows XP with SP2.

I have downloaded the Windows binary version of RMagick from the
RubyForge page.

Specifically, I have downloaded:

1.14.1 binary gem for Ruby 1.8.5 (fixed for RubyGems 0.9.4)
RMagick-1.14.1_IM-6.3.0-7-Q8-2.zip

I have removed any older versions of RMagick using:

gem uninstall RMagick

I have updated my version of rubygems.

I executed the ImageMagick installer found in the zip file and
selected the "Update executable search path" from the installation
options.

I then installed the gem:

gem install rmagick --local

and received the response:

Successfully installed rmagick-1.14.1-unknown
1 gem installed

Unfortunately, when I type the following at a Rails Console prompt:

require 'RMagick'

I receive the response:

require 'RMagick'MissingSourceFile: no such file to load -- RMagick

Similarly, when I attempt to use RMagick within my Rails application
(I use it to resize an uploaded image) I get the following message:

Problems loading rmagickProcessor: no such file to load -- RMagick

When I place the line:

require 'RMagick'

in the application's environment.rb the application fails with the
message:

ExitingC:/InstantRails/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/
custom_require.rb:27:in `gem_original_require': no such file to load

I woud like to thank Robin Mayfield for indirectly resolving my
similar issue with RMagick.

RMagick is now installed and working.

Here's what I did:

1. Downloaded 0.9.4 RubyGems zip file.

2. Ran the setup.rb

3. From within the unzipped RMagic-win32 directory I ran: gem install
rmagick-1.14.1-win32.gem --local

I didn't need to insert require 'RMagick' in the environment.rb file.

Yeeha!!

Apparently, RMagick doesn't work with RubyGems 0.9.5.

Thanks again.

Thanks for posting that. I was just struggling with the installation
of the gem.

I upgraded to gem 0.9.4 and installed RMagick ok.

BTW there is some also some information here:

I encountered the same problem.

I do not know why this problem occurred.

but at last i solved the problem.
my note computer installed the same rmagick environment.
it contains : all files in c:\ruby\lib\ruby\gems\1.8\gems
\rmagick-1.14.1-win32\
and c:\ruby\lib\ruby\gems\1.8\specifications\rmagick-1.14.1-
win32.gemspec file.

copy them to my new installation environment,and delete the
rmagick-1.14.1-unknown floder and rmagick-1.14.1-win32.gemspec file.

it is stupid, but doable.

have a try!

Try to restart your computer. Worked for me :slight_smile:

Hi Walter,
It seems to me RMagick doesn't work with RubyGems 1.0.1 either. Does any
one know? Can someone please confirm?
I got "loading RmagickProcessor: no such file to load -- RMagick"
message in the log. If I add:
require 'rubygems'
require 'RMagick'
to the environment.rb, My server does not start up successful and the
following message is in the server log:
`gem_original_require': no such file to load -- RMagick
(MissingSourceFile)

I used rmagick-2.3.0-mswin32 and ImageMagick-6.4.0-Q8.

I'm looking forward for any thoughts/suggestions.
Thank you.

I'm having the same problem with Gem 1.1.1 if I type into the IRB

require 'rubygems'

=> false (this is normal it means that rubygems was allready loaded)

require 'rmagick'

=> true

But when i try to start my server using 'simple captcha' plugin i get
the error

/Applications/Aptana Studio/plugins/org.jruby_1.1.0.5965_RC2p2/lib/
ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:in

`require': no such file to load -- RMagick (MissingSourceFile)

I have RMagick installed, rails just can't find it. I also have a
similar problem with ruby-openid. can someone please help??
