Full Version: Ruby-sqlite3 Support?

Hi all,
I recently got the 1.8.3 release of ruby installed on my C860 which also let me put gem and install rails. I also have SQLITE3 working.

HOWEVER, the ruby-sqlite3 gem installation requires some native compiling. I suppose I could try to get that working but I wondered if anyone out there has already compiled support to bind the two together.

Failing that, does mysql work with rails on the Z?

TIA,
Mike

I wanted to follow up with this thread, as I am going to be interested in using Ruby natively on the Zaurus SL-C1000.

Please post if you've had experience using Ruby on the SL-Cx00 family and can help with advice and instructions.

Has anyone made any progress on this? I too am interested in getting Ruby/Rails/SQLite installed.

I got the latest 1.8.4 version of ruby installed but failed on gem as it needed some crypto library that I couldn't find a compatible version of for the Sharp ROM.

Obviously I can use the ZIP version of Rails (which I've downloaded but not got around to trying yet. Still new to the Z).

So I guess I'm going to get stuck on the Ruby SQLite bindings too then?

I recommend going that extra mile and getting gem running... it is so useful to have it available.

I'm using all of this stuff on OpenBSD on my Zaurus and of course because I'm essentially using the same OS as is installed on a Desktop or Server machine it has all of the required libraries.

Being able to run gem_server for convenience over pure rdoc is nice but doing quick update checks using gem is also great.

The only working and complete Ruby that I know of is for pdaXrom. It wouldn't work for me on the Cacko ROM. =(
Dobby
I'm now using pdaXrom but still have the issue of no gem support. Ideally I'd like ruby, rails, sqlite3 (+ bindings of course) and an editor.

Ruby installs (from Fabien) but no gem or rake support as far as I can tell. I've got sqlite3 installed but need the bindings.

Any help would be appreciated.

There is a complete Ruby + Gems package for pdaxrom.. I don't have a quick reference, but it's out there..
Dobby
Well as I said I found Fabiens ipk which is supposed to include gem but it doesn't work (gem: command not found). I've seen attempts at trying to get it installed manually to be unsuccessful also.
