What I did?
When In gem file I wrote this

and run bundle install

Bellow Error came to me. Saying that there is missing of some extension

What Happened to me?

Gem::Installer::ExtensionBuildError: ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

/home/taimoor/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.3-p448/bin/ruby extconf.rb
checking for curl-config… no
checking for main() in -lcurl… no
*** extconf.rb failed ***
Could not create Makefile due to some reason, probably lack of
necessary libraries and/or headers. Check the mkmf.log file for more
details. You may need configuration options.

Provided configuration options:
extconf.rb:23:in `’: Can’t find libcurl or curl/curl.h (RuntimeError)

Try passing –with-curl-dir or –with-curl-lib and –with-curl-include
options to extconf.

Gem files will remain installed in /home/taimoor/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p448@appattrip/gems/curb-0.8.5 for inspection.
Results logged to /home/taimoor/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p448@appattrip/gems/curb-0.8.5/ext/gem_make.out

An error occurred while installing curb (0.8.5), and Bundler cannot continue.
Make sure that `gem install curb -v ‘0.8.5’` succeeds before bundling.

How I resolved?

sudo apt-get install libcurl3-dev
