Response to: Installer grief

Ok, first, let me begin by saying that I am really sorry that you're having so much trouble trying to get everything working on your system. Also, I would like to apologize for such a long delay in getting back to you, but I have been out of town for business for a while and just recently got a chance to go back through all my missed emails and so forth.

Murphy's Law normally seems to work against me. So, normally if anything can go wrong with an install it will happen to me, but for some reason once I switched to the CVS version of RubyCocoa, it installed without any problems whatsoever. This is nice, since software should never be hard, but it puts me at a bit of a disadvantage when trying to answer your questions since I never ran into these problems.

I did look up your problem on the RubyCocoa-talk forum on and found an exact match with the following as their answer:

RubyCocoa requires /usr/bin/cpp3 in "ruby install.rb config". If your
Mac doesn"t have /usr/bin/cpp3, rubycocoa that you build would be broken.

Please install gcc3.1 from XcodeTools1.5 to install /usr/bin/cpp3.

Try out their solution, hopefully that will solve your problem. If not, post back here again and I will see what else I can find.

Thanks for reading the article, and I hope this helps solve your problem.
