Can you post the other errors it generates? so far all the checks you posted do not provide information about the error.

Thank you.


evanphx commented May 14, 2010

I've seen this pop up a few times. I'll investigate it.

Same here. 10.6.3, rubinius 1.0.0

Seeing the same issue. Here is some additional debug info (including the gem folder) http://gist.github.com/402485

Please describe what do I need to post in addition... since it's the only output between common lines.
OSX 10.6.3, libxml2 2.7.6 via macports

Probably would help to upload your mkmf.log file (cd into the gem folder, then ext/nokogiri/mkmf.log). Here is mine: http://cl.ly/d8481ff8ba9d04fdffbe

It appears that there rbx running extconf.rb crashes for some reason. This is my top priority item for Monday and 1.0.1.


yaroslav commented May 16, 2010

I've succeeded to install nokogiri finally, after 3 or 4 attempts just mashing "gem install nokogiri" with no changes.


evanphx commented May 16, 2010

Yeah, thats consistent with there being a spurious crash.

Successfully installed after upgrading libxml2 from 2.7.6 to 2.7.7

Update StackVariable::last_match_ in the GC. Closed by fa4d2e6.
