[on Kubuntu Linux 8.04.1, with Ruby 1.8.6 and latest rubygems]

I think the installation routine was looking for sqlite3.h and couldn't 
find it, but I may be way off. I'm clearly beyond my comfort/knowledge 
boundary...again. Here's the first part of the console output:

===
tomc@tomc-desktop:~/Ruby-work$ sudo gem install sqlite3-ruby
[sudo] password for tomc:
Building native extensions.  This could take a while...
ERROR:  Error installing sqlite3-ruby:
         ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

/usr/local/bin/ruby extconf.rb install sqlite3-ruby
checking for fdatasync() in -lrt... yes
checking for sqlite3.h... no
*** 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.
.

I'm installing this for use with Radiant, if that matters, as advised by 
http://wiki.radiantcms.org/Installation - "If you are using a newer 
version of SQLite3, make sure you have the latest version of 
sqlite3-ruby (1.2.1), or you will have problems with NULL fields."

IF it needs sqlite3.h (which I confirmed is not to be found in my file 
system), where do I get it, and where do I put it? It's not in the Adept 
package manager.

Thanks for any help, which is much needed at this point.
