postgresql gem on Leopard stock gem system

This fails horribly.

The solution is to make sure you’re only building for your architecture:

Odysseus:ext kev$ sudo -s
bash-3.2# ARCHFLAGS='-arch i386' gem install postgres
Building native extensions.  This could take a while...
Successfully installed postgres-

    Gah… tell me about it. Even the macport to postgres was a debacle:

    Postgres needs love on the adoption / usage front. Postgres FTW.

    I inadvertently ran into this problem yesterday. This works perfectly. Thank you.

    Hi Kevin,

    I have just started learning Ruby on Rails and plan to use it in Rolling out our web product in India.

    I was wondering if there could be a way in which we can ask a few questions from you, to be answered whenever you get some time :)

    Regards, —Vaibhav

    FYI, this does NOT work with sudo since sudo strips the env var out. You must ‘sudo -s’ or ‘sudo su’ and run the command straight up. I don’t like it, but I couldn’t find a better way.
