Ruby on Rails and Postgres - Installing postgresql gem

Hi, Rodrigo:

What's your error? What environment are you running under?

We have it working fine with a PostgreSQL dbase.I believe the gem is:
pg(0.8.0).

Thanks,

Gary.

Hey Rodrigo and All.

I’m on OS X and it’s not easy to get going out of the box - IIRC i usually have an issue with a postgres gem when I use ports.
I’m looking into it now.

What platform are you working on Rodrigo?

Actually it's quite easy. Install PostgreSQL, install headers (perhaps
through Fink), install gem. Done.

So don't use ports!

Best,

I’m glad it was easy for you.

Thanks for your suggestion - I’m not in the habit of throwing something out when with some patience
I can learn something new.

For anyone else who’s had trouble with macports here is a walk through.

Agreed, but there's also no sense in using the wrong tool for the job.

Best,

Well be both can agree on that. I know from a long history of using software that packages like fink or macports often have bugs and occasionally we encounter them. After all, we programmers are human and make mistakes.
