cucumber + yajl troubles (OSX Lion)

using rails 3.0.1 and cucumber-rails (~>1.1.0).. and got this weird error message:

so.. working solution is:

  • go to the gem itself ~/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p0/gems/yajl-ruby-1.0.0/ext/yajl open  yajl_ext.h  and  yajl_ext.c  and change  inline void to static void
  • gmake clean all
  • overwrite yajl.bundle in lib/
example of edited yajl.h
voila! :)

  1. Very nice! Ran into this while using Yajl::Parser to parse an HTTP stream, and this fix solved it.

    Is changing inline to static safe? Not enough of a C whiz to understand the implications…
