Hi,
I have installed Ruby 1.9.1 in my MacBook PRO. Everything is installing and running correctly, but I cannot install mongrel. I receive the following error:

sh-3.2# gem install mongrel-1.1.5.gem
Building native extensions.  This could take a while...
ERROR:  Error installing mongrel-1.1.5.gem:
      ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

Gem files will remain installed in /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/mongrel-1.1.5 for inspection.
Results logged to /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/mongrel-1.1.5/ext/http11/gem_make.out
sh-3.2#

Any ideas?

Thanks,

have you tried running just

gem install mongrel

so it downloads and installs it?

Yes, I did. The example here was just a try to see if there was some kind of corruption.

It looks like there is a bug in Mongrel to run in Ruby 1.9.1 in Mac OS X.
I am switching to use Thin, which is another web server for Rails.
