I downloaded the latest Ruby stack virtual machine (bitnami-rubystack-3.2.5-0-ubuntu-12.04) and, while I can run an existing app that uses SQLite, I get an error when I run "rails new" (e.g., rails new test_app). I can create a new Rails app by passing "-d mysql" to rails new, however.
The error happens during the "bundle install" portion of creating the app and I've included the details below:
Installing sqlite3 (1.3.6) with native extensions
Gem::Installer::ExtensionBuildError: ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

sqlite3.h is missing. Try 'port install sqlite3 +universal'
or 'yum install sqlite-devel' and check your shared library search path (the
location where your sqlite3 shared library is located).
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:
Gem files will remain installed in /home/bitnami/.bundler/tmp/2940/gems/sqlite3-1.3.6 for inspection.

An error occured while installing sqlite3 (1.3.6), and Bundler cannot continue.
Make sure that
gem install sqlite3 -v '1.3.6' succeeds before bundling.
