I was going through the process of installing Ruby on Windows Server
2008 for use with Redmine. After executing rake db:migrate, I was
confronted with an error that I needed to do: 

gem install activerecord-postgres-adapter ....   however the gem wasn't
present. Found a forum indicating that this wasn't really a gem, that I
needed to either do one of the following:


gem install postgres   or..

gem install pg


At which point it gripped that the development kit needed installing. I
followed the instructions here:


and now when trying either to install postgres or pg it tells me "Could
not create makefile for some reason, probably lack of necessray
libraries and/or headers. Check the mkmf.log...."


I installed PostGresSQL with the Windows installer exe provided on


Can anyone tell me what I'm supposed to be doing here? I'm completely
new to both ruby and postgres.
