    Oracle drivers for Ruby1.9.1

      Did anyone get an oracle driver with ruby1.9.1 installed? Or is there simply no support at this point in time?
        • 1. Re: Oracle drivers for Ruby1.9.1

          Use Oracle enhanced adapter on Ruby 1.9.1 with ruby-oci8 2.0 library or gem

          ruby-oci8 2.0 is available

          C:\> gem install ruby-oci8 -v 2.0.3

          gem install activerecord-oracle_enahnced-adapter

            I can't get the ruby-oci8 gem to install on my windows machine.
            It seems to be looking for a c compiler (cc)
            (Which I do not have)

            Any suggestions?

              Did you install Ruby 1.9.1 from http://www.rubyinstaller.org/download.html ?

              And did you install Development Kit (which includes compilers for native extensions)?

              If yes then what kind of errors are you getting?

                Yes, I got the Ruby from http://www.rubyinstaller.org/download.html
                I did not get the Dev Kit, can you give me the URL?
                That might be the missing link...

                  I installed the RubyInstaller DevKit including the mod to fstab.
                  Still gets to the checking for cc...
                  and reports ng (presumably, not good)
                  • 6. Re: Oracle drivers for Ruby1.9.1
                    Try to describe your problem in ruby-oci8 discussion forum http://rubyforge.org/forum/forum.php?forum_id=1078

                    Probably ruby-oci8 author can answer what is the issue.

                      C:\> gem install ruby-oci8 -v 2.0.3

                      What is the error message?
