I have the exact same issue.

I just came back to this.

As per the output, I attempted the following:

dhcp-128-146-210-218:prey tibbon$ gem install capybara-webkit -v '0.7.2'
Building native extensions. This could take a while...

Also had the same problem, this is my first time with Suspenders.
I searched around and it seemed the problem might be not having g++ on my os. Tried a bunch of things like installing some helper programs, changing paths and whatnot, but still had no luck.

Eventually I just altered the Gemfile to exclude capybara-webkit. That allowed the rest of the bundle to install properly, but I'm not sure what I should do from here.
The app is in a half-created state, and the Suspenders info said that it was only for creating new apps. Not sure if you just need to run Suspenders again, or at this point run "rails new App".

Are there docs on this?


mjankowski commented Apr 6, 2012

We made a change recently which changes the order of when bundle install is run, such that some gem build issues should be resolved. I don't think it fully resolves the capybara-webkit issue, which sounds like it could be solved with a doc fix.


drapergeek commented Jul 13, 2012

Should this be moved to an issue with Capybara-webkit instead of here since it seems like that is the underlying issue?

This looks like an issue of folks not having QT installed properly on their machine.

I'm proposing on a separate ticket that we add a capybara-webkit flag, turned on by default, but which can be set to false, to ease installation and reduce dependencies.

[#92] Add --webkit flag
By default, Capybara Webkit will be installed. However, Some folks don't
want/need it, and having QT as a dependency of Suspenders drastically
raises the bar in terms of ease of installation. See:
