I have installed libyaml yet Ruby install can not find yaml.h. I do not have sudo permissions so everything must be done as a normal user.
wget http://pyyaml.org/download/libyaml/yaml-0.1.4.tar.gz tar -xzf yaml-0.1.4.tar.gz cd yaml-0.1.4 ./configure --prefix=/users/$USER make make install wget http://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/1.9/ruby-1.9.3-p484.tar.gz tar -xzf ruby-1.9.3-p484.tar.gz cd ruby-1.9.3-p484 ./configure --prefix=/users/$USER make
configuring psych yaml.h is missing. Please install libyaml. Failed to configure psych. It will not be installed.
yaml.h does exists at
~/include/yaml.h How do I specify that the
~/lib paths are included?
NB : also have the same problem with libffi which I have installed.
Operating system and shell:
$ cat /etc/redhat-release Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS release 4 (Nahant Update 9) $ echo $shell /bin/tcsh
Try using the
--with-opt-dir option when compiling ruby. In this case since you installed yaml into
/users/$USER, then you would also include it in
$ cd ruby-1.9.3-p484 $ ./configure --prefix=/users/$USER --with-opt-dir=/users/$USER
If you had installed yaml in a separate directory like so:
$ cd yaml-0.1.4 $ ./configure --prefix=/users/$USER/yaml014
Then you would specify the yaml directory when compiling ruby:
$ ./configure --prefix=/users/$USER --with-opt-dir=/users/$USER/yaml014
