Gem install knife-azure errors


#1

Hi Folks,

I am installing a knife-azure plugin using gem to make API calls to Azure
for listing,
creating and deleting instances. But I get too many dependencies error.
One of them was rspec so I installed it, i now get another error message
saying
ffi.h is missing. Here is the error that was thrown on the console -

[root@test ~]# gem install ffi
Building native extensions. This could take a while…

.

Hi,

I tried installing FFI from the GIT repository -


But when I execute rake gem:install it says [warn] YARD unavailable.
So I install YARD gem and again run rake gem:install, i still get the
below error :

[warn] YARD unavailable
rake aborted!
Don’t know how to build task ‘gem:install’

(See full trace by running task with --trace)

Any pointers ?

I was able to fix it.
Instead of running “rake gem:install” , I ran "rake install"
It installed FFI gem

Try using bundler to install knife-azure (and dependencies).

cat > Gemfile source 'https://rubygems.org' gem 'knife-azure' ^D bundle install

Cheers,
