I need some help upgrading to ruby-2 on rails 4. I've managed the upgrade on 1.9.3 and I'm not sure why I can't bundle install if I switch to 2.

What error message did you get?
Hi Jimmy, thanks for responding. I'm using Rails 4.0.2. It fails on "bcrypt" with the following error: Installing bcrypt (3.1.6) Gem::Installer::ExtensionBuildError: ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.
/Users/loisgh/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.0.0-head/bin/ruby extconf.rb checking for ruby/util.h... *** extconf.rb failed ***Could not create Makefile due to some reason, probably lack of necessarylibraries and/or headers. Check the mkmf.log file for more details. You mayneed configuration options.

That's the key: "Check the mkmf.log file for more details" ...
Lois, this is a dumb question but you don't have a required ruby version set on top of your gemfile do you? Also, have you tried running 'bundle update' or better yet, deleting your gemfile.lock file and bundle install again?
Also, check the mkmf.log file as Vietnhl suggests.
You're the dumb one. I DO have the required Ruby version set through rvm. Btw I sorted this out all by myself w/o your help. Next time don't be nasty. The only dumb question is the one you don't ask.

Jimmy Chen is not a nasty guy - he didn't mean that you are dumb but he said that he is about to ask you a "dumb" question - dumb as in "silly", "obvious" or what have you. Having said that, we'd still like you to look at that log file and let us know what the content of that log file is. Creating a new discussion is probably appropriate at this point in time.
Wow Lois, I think you misread my helpful reply. I was merely trying to help you get to the bottom of your problem and thought a ask a dumb question about your setup since I'm not there in person to see it. Anyway, I'm glad you got it sorted out. I guess the old saying, "no good deeds go unpunished" applies here. Lol.
I thought about it long and hard - about 0.5 nanoseconds - and as your friend, I say: "Better that you get smacked than me, Jimmy" :)

Folks, please join me for discussion and brain storming about drug abuse and solutions.
This is an e-mail I just end Josh:
I am the person who approached you asking about starting a Hackthon. Our movement is BTFMovement (website is incomplete: www.BTFMovement.com)
We are vowed to fight drug abuse through:* Education* Change the laws the treat the addict as a criminal* Change insurance that gives none-10 days of rehab when some recovering addicts need upward of 2 years in recovery* Change perception about the drug abuser--s/he is not a bad person, s/he is your child, sister/brother, uncle/aunt, mother/father, friend, live in our neighborhood and in our communities.* Provide a path for the recovering addict who, more than likely, has criminal record for possession, cannot drive, cannot find a job and cannot afford education.
Would love to meet with you and brain storm during our next meeting
All my bestAvi

The war on drugs is a fiasco because we let the law enforcement agencies talk us into a militarized approach to it, at the expense of treating drug abuse as a public health problem.

Help support your Meetup
Founded in 2004, NYC.rb is the place for experienced Ruby and Rails programmers in New York City.
We meet on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month. Second Tuesdays are for one or more talks, and fourth Tuesdays are just hackfests, where people bring their laptops and hang out.
Job postings are allowed on the mailing list if they meet the following requirements:
* You must identify the company by name. * You must put [JOB] in the subject to help others filter out these messages. * The job must be Ruby-related, and in the NYC metro area.
You cannot directly contact other list members about jobs unless they've contacted you first--violators of this rule may be banned and/or publicly shamed.
If you have any questions or concerns about these rules, please feel free to contact the Meetup organizers.
