Problem installing sqlite3-ruby!
I’m having issues installing the sqlite3-ruby gem on crunchbang linux. After googling the past few hours and following several people with the same problem, I still haven’t gotten it to work.
Here is what I see after trying a ‘sudo gem install sqlite3-ruby’
Building native extensions. This could take a while.
ERROR: Error installing sqlite3-ruby:
ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

sqlite3-ruby only supports sqlite3 versions 3.6.16+, please upgrade!
* 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.
I downloaded sqlite-amalgamation-18.104.22.168.tar.gz and issued the following commands:
tar zxvf sqlite-amalgamation-22.214.171.124.tar.gz
cd cd sqlite-126.96.36.199
make && make install
sudo gem install sqlite3-ruby — —with-sqlite3-dir=$HOME/sqlite
However, I still get the exact same error. I’ve used ‘sudo apt-get install sqlite3 libsqlite3-dev’ but I still get the exact same error.
And as a small aside, how come when I use ‘sudo apt-get install sqlite3’, it grabs 3.5.9 instead of the 188.8.131.52 I manually downloaded?
