Rails & OpenSSL: `require_frameworks': no such file to load

Hi Nik Winter

    A quick googling gave answer from another forum as

You need openssl-devel library.
So install it first

Here are the next steps:
1. cd /ruby_install_dir/ext/openssl
2. ruby extconf.rb
3. make
4. make install

You need openssl-devel library.

I compiled OpenSSL from the source, so I should have all the headers and
stuff. It seems like Rails can't find it, and I don't know how to tell
it where to look.

ruby extconf --with-openssl-include=/path/to/openssl/headers --with-
openssl-lib=/path/to/openssl/libraries

This didn't work.

Thanks for the responses!

When you compiled it, did you use --prefix to specify the install
location? If not it should be /usr/local/lib or something similar.

Once you know where it installed you can add an entry into
/etc/ld.so.conf and run ldconfig. After that your system will know
about the new headers.

What happened ?

Is the location of openssl on your search path? What happens if you
type "which openssl"?

The easiest way to ensure that it's found is, if you're building from
source, use the configure command to install on your path. For
instance I use /opt/local as a repository and have /opt/local/bin on
my PATH. So I run:

$ cd ~/src/openssl-0.9.8j
$ ./configure --prefix=/opt/local --any-other-configuration-options
$ make
$ make install
$ which openssl
/opt/local/bin/ssl
$ openssl version
