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

/usr/bin/ruby extconf.rb
checking for fdatasync() in -lrt... yes
checking for sqlite3.h... no

You need to install the development set for SQLite3 since the gem has a native build. From:

you need to do the equivalent of the below step:

* Install Sqlite3
sudo apt-get install sqlite3 libsqlite3-dev
sudo gem install sqlite3-ruby

I'm sorry I'm a limited Linux user (and mostly use Ubuntu there).
