uninitialized constant AuthlogicConnect (NameError) -- weird issue on Ubuntu #26

I'm trying to get a copy of an app that works fine in OSX up and running on Ubuntu, but it looks like AuthlogicConnect isn't loading properly. When it hits the line:
AuthlogicConnect.config = YAML.load_file("config/acc.yml")
it throws an error: uninitialized constant AuthlogicConnect (NameError)

Bundle install says that everything is installed fine, and the config is identical to two other machines which have no issues.
ruby --version
ruby 1.9.2dev (2010-07-11 revision 28618) [i686-linux]

rails --version
Rails 3.0.0.beta4

I'm not sure where to troubleshoot this....


Is there a list of requirements somewhere? I'm thinking that the VM I'm installing this on is missing some basic library, causing the gem not to function, but there is no useful error message being generated.


figured it out by going into irb and typing:
require 'authogic'

-- turns out openssl wasn't being seen by ruby. I went back into the ruby source/ext/openssl directory, did ruby extconf.rb then make and make install -- this fixed it.
