Rails bundle install not working error with nokogiri

I started a new rails project, cd'd inside it and then tried to bundle install

I got the following error

An error occurred while installing nokogiri (1.6.7), and Bundler cannot continue. Make sure that gem install nokogiri -v '1.6.7' succeeds before bundling.

I am pretty sure this is a level A problem I tried googling it but found nothing, hope i didnt overlook it

Thanks for any help

edit: if i try to manually install nokogiri it gives the following error

Adams-MacBook-Pro:fancy_cars adamkatz$ gem install nokiogiri

You need to install the OS X development tools (the output says so, towards the end).

Here are some good instructions on installing xcode: Installing Ruby on Rails on Mac for Ruby on Rails development (about half way down)

If that works it looks like the simplest way to get you there.

If that doesn't work you might find help here:
