I find some trouble to bundle install some gems like nokogiri, eventmachine, json, http_parser.rb, yajl-ruby on production server. I use capistrano to deploy the app,

Gem::Installer::ExtensionBuildError: ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.
/home/deployer/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.0.0-p353/bin/ruby extconf.rb
Results logged to /home/deployer/apps/yanny/shared/bundle/ruby/2.0.0/gems/gemname/ext/gem_make.out
Make sure that gem install X succeeds before bundling.

if i try to install missing gem through server it works and bundle install stops asking for it:

gem install x -v y --install-dir /home/deployer/apps/holo/shared/bundle/ruby/2.0.0/

Any ideas ?

did it work? I have the same problem. Can install succesfully with same setup on laptop (except an older kernel on the do node) but fails in the same way on server. rvm install 2.0.0-dev also fails. <br> <br>Woudl be awesome to be able to run the latest kernel.

Run this command as the user ‘deployer’: <br> <br><pre>rvm install 2.0.0-dev</pre>

Here is the log error : <br> <br>I got the same error for each of gems quoted before
