Installing pg gem on Ruby 2.0

Installing pg gem on Ruby 2.0

When installing the pg gem on Ruby 2.0 I ran into the following issues:

pg.c: In function ‘pg_s_library_version’:
pg.c:272: warning: implicit declaration of function ‘PQlibVersion’
pg.c: In function ‘Init_pg_ext’:
pg.c:375: error: ‘PQPING_OK’ undeclared (first use in this function)
pg.c:375: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
pg.c:375: error: for each function it appears in.)
pg.c:377: error: ‘PQPING_REJECT’ undeclared (first use in this function)
pg.c:379: error: ‘PQPING_NO_RESPONSE’ undeclared (first use in this function)
pg.c:381: error: ‘PQPING_NO_ATTEMPT’ undeclared (first use in this function)
make: *** [pg.o] Error 1

To solve this:

  1. run locate pg_config
  2. Find the binary (mine is /usr/local/bin/pg_config)
  3. gem install pg -v '0.16.0' -- with-pg-config=/usr/local/bin/pg_config

UPDATE #1: If this still fails with pg version 0.16.0, then downgrade to version 0.15.1 and it should work. Add the following to your Gemfile: gem 'pg', '~> 0.15.1'

UPDATE #2: When I really came to need version 0.16.0, I simply re-installed postgresql via homebrew (updating homebrew was probably what broke everything in the first place)

Hey @bruceyue, try downgrading it to pg version 0.15.1. Still having some issues with the latest 0.16.0.
