install the ncurses library into your devkit or ping the authors and ask
them to release binary gem releases.
-r

I'm stuck on this also... could you please elaborate
"install the ncurses library into your devkit"
If by this you mean copy the ncurses files from the berlios website to
the devkit folder, then thats done and that fails.

Please help! Any insight would be helpfull, im a little lost right now
and i would love to write a tetris close using ruby

Hi Nikita,

sorry but I could not find exact solution for this but i tried
"pdcurses" instead of "ncurses", but both are not same but doing most of
same things. just go to following link for find some difference between
them.
