sqlite 3 gem on freebsd

have a rails app and need sqlite3 gem compiled on your freebsd environment?

gem install sqlite3 -- --with-sqlite3-include=/usr/local/include --with-sqlite3-lib=/usr/local/lib

and if you need to use bundler for a rails 3 app, you should do


bundle config build.sqlite3 --with-sqlite3-include=/usr/local/include --with-sqlite3-lib=/usr/local/lib

bundle install

wkhtmltopdf on freebsd 8.1 amd64

I compiled wkhtmltopdf 0.9.9 and 0.10.0_rc1 using the modified qt-version(git clone git://gitorious.org/+wkhtml2pdf/qt/wkhtmltopdf-qt.git wkhtmltopdf-qt). The resulting binary does not need an X Server.

The best results are delivered by the wkhtmltopdf 0.9.9

It took me a total of approx. 20 hours πŸ™‚ …. but now I’m really proud πŸ˜€

You can download the zipped static binary here wkhtmltopdf 0.9.9:
