To install watir-webdriver on Mavericks I had to install XCode Command Line Tools first, using the following command:
However, even after installing Command Line Tools I was getting the following errors when installing the Ruby gem:
Recently I've been getting the error
error: Setup script exited with error: command 'clang' failed with exit status 1
when trying to install various Python libraries using Easy Install on OSX Mountain Lion (with Server.app installed). This happened recently trying to install psycopg2, but I've seen it before when trying to install lxml.

Fixed the problem by first installing Xcode from the App Store, then installing Command Line Tools from the Downloads section of Xcode's Preferences screen.
UPDATE: Now on Mavericks you can install Command Line Tools using the following command:
In Server.app 2.1.1 for OSX Mountain Lion, the PostgreSQL configuration file has been moved from
to its new location at
You no longer need administrative privileges to edit it.
Here are a few notes to remind myself how to connect to the default postgres instance used by OSX Server.app on Mountain Lion.
- Enable "Websites" in Server.app.
- Check if postgres is running
- If it's not, turn it on
- In order to connect with pgAdmin (and maybe through the terminal too), edit the file
- Then restart postgres
- Now, connecting with psql in terminal still causes this error (use template1 as the database name if you don't already have a database set up):
- My preference to work around this is to create a user named "root" in the database, so I can just login with sudo. In order to do this, first login as the default user (_postgres). Use your own password.
sudo serveradmin fullstatus postgres
sudo serveradmin start postgres
UPDATE: The config file moved in the Server.app 2.1.1 update. It's now at:
sudo serveradmin stop postgres sudo serveradmin start postgres
server:~ shellperson$ psql template1 psql: could not connect to server: Permission denied Is the server running locally and accepting connections on Unix domain socket "/var/pgsql_socket/.s.PGSQL.5432"?
server:~ shellperson$ sudo -u _postgres psql template1 Password: psql (9.1.4) Type "help" for help. template1=# create role root login; CREATE ROLE template1=# \q
Once the user is created, you can login with "sudo psql databaseName".
server:~ shellperson$ sudo psql template1
