Re: Error: can't find ldap.h and lber.h

Did you find out any solution on that topic?

I got the same error during install ruby/ldap (using openldap2, ruby version 1.8.7, installed openldap2-dev package, os: suse enterprise linux)

I tried the following commands
ruby extconf.rb --with-openldap2 --with-ldap-dir=/usr/include

(find / -iname ldap.h --> /usr/include/ldap.h)

Does anyone of you have an idea why this doesn't work? :-/
