I'm trying to install a newer version of the nokogiri gem (going to 1.5.2 from 18.104.22.168).
The output that i get looks like this:
[~]# gem install nokogiri -v '1.5.2' Building native extensions. This could take a while... ERROR: Error installing nokogiri: ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension. /path/to/rvm/rubies/ruby-1.8.7-p352/bin/ruby extconf.rb checking for libxml/parser.h... yes checking for libxslt/xslt.h... yes checking for libexslt/exslt.h... yes checking for iconv_open() in iconv.h... yes checking for xmlParseDoc() in -lxml2... yes checking for xsltParseStylesheetDoc() in -lxslt... yes checking for exsltFuncRegister() in -lexslt... yes checking for xmlHasFeature()... no ----- The function 'xmlHasFeature' is missing from your installation of libxml2. Likely this means that your installed version of libxml2 is old enough that nokogiri will not work well. To get around this problem, please upgrade your installati on of libxml2.
This is a RedHat box with RPM v4.3.3, and i'm assuming that libxml2 needs to be updated. It looks like the current version is:
But i'm not familiar with what the upgrade command/process would look like, can you help?
