This is an old, deprecated version of the 'pg' gem that hasn't been maintained or supported since early 2008. You should install/require 'pg' instead. If you need ruby-pg for legacy code that can't be converted, you can still install it using an explicit version, like so: gem install ruby-pg -v '0.7.9.2008.01.28' gem uninstall ruby-pg -v '>0.7.9.2008.01.28' If you have any questions, the nice folks in the Google group can help: http://goo.gl/OjOPP / email@example.com
Gemfile gem 'ruby-pg', '~> 0.8.0'
install gem install ruby-pg
