Problem with sqlite3 installation

I use "Fedora". I have installed ruby, rubygems, rails, sqlite-devel Ruby 1.8.7 Rails 3.0.4 gem 1.5.2

#gem install sqlite3 Building native extensions. This could take a while... ERROR: Error installing sqlite3:   ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

        /usr/bin/ruby extconf.rb checking for sqlite3.h... no sqlite3.h is missing. Try 'port install sqlite3 +universal' or 'yum install sqlite3-devel' and check your shared library search path (the location where your sqlite3 shared library is located). *** extconf.rb failed *** Could not create Makefile due to some reason, probably lack of necessary libraries and/or headers. Check the mkmf.log file for more details. You may need configuration options.

Provided configuration options:   --with-opt-dir   --without-opt-dir   --with-opt-include   --without-opt-include=${opt-dir}/include   --with-opt-lib   --without-opt-lib=${opt-dir}/lib   --with-make-prog   --without-make-prog   --srcdir=.   --curdir   --ruby=/usr/bin/ruby   --with-sqlite3-dir   --without-sqlite3-dir   --with-sqlite3-include   --without-sqlite3-include=${sqlite3-dir}/include   --with-sqlite3-lib   --without-sqlite3-lib=${sqlite3-dir}/lib

Gem files will remain installed in /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/sqlite3-1.3.3 for inspection. Results logged to /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/sqlite3-1.3.3/ext/sqlite3/gem_make.out

I surfed the net and found many similar posts. But couldnt find a proper solution for it. Awaiting good response.. Thank you..

Well. I fixed it myself.. I think sqlite3 gem doesnt work well with fedora. enough if you have sqlite3-ruby gem. But dont forget to edit the Gemfile of your project once you create it..

Initially, your Gemfile will be like..

gem 'sqlite3' . . #gem 'sqlite3-ruby', :require => 'sqlite3'

Change it to,

#gem 'sqlite3' . . gem 'sqlite3-ruby', :require => 'sqlite3'

Now it will work very well.

Nice. Also you may need RVM and also 2 packages if you are on Ubuntu: libsql3-devel and build-essentials. Sometimes zlib causes problems too. If you used RVM do not write sudo befro gem install commands, it's important. bests, gezope
