Trouble installing/running on OS X 10.13


#1

Hi, I’m having trouble building the native extensions when installing as a normal user. I can install Jekyll as sudo, but it fails to run if I do.

I have included some of my config and the error message below.

You can see, my ruby path, my $PATH, the results of gem install bundler jekyll, the results of sudo gem install jekyll, and me trying to run jekyll new.

If you have additional questions, let me know.

Any advice?
Thanks for your time.
