    Hi,

    I'm new to ruby, I'm trying to clarify some install instructions:

    "Don't forget to install ruby-dev to and mkmf gem."

    are these gems, I can't seem to find anything about them.

    Thanks
    Brian

    Hi,

    Those are packages you should install if your copy of ruby is from a
    package manager (like apt in Ubuntu/Debian, yum in Fedora, etc). If
    you are running on Windows or building from source I don't think you
    have to worry about those.

    Hi,

    I'm doing this on dreamhost, which is a debian system.I listed the
    installed gems, these didn't come up.

    Thanks
