Helped me with this error during configuring Octopress on Ubuntu
Error installing RedCloth: ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.
Guide below was written by Eric Zhang
My Ubuntu 12.04 solution is install the ruby1.9.1-full version, that can resolve this issue.
$sudo apt-get install ruby1.9.1-full
you can execute command:
$sudo update-alternatives --config ruby
to select the alternative ruby which you have installed. and then, execute below commands to finish the octopress deploy:
$git clone https://github.com/erizhang/octopress.git octopress $cd octopress/ $sudo gem install bundler $sudo gem install RedCloth -v '4.2.9' $bundle install $rake install
below commands you can find from octopress deploy guideline page:
$rake setup_github_pages $sudo rake setup_github_pages $sudo rake generate $sudo rake deploy
Hope it's helpful for you, thanks
