First we must find the exact version of google-protobuf that your GitLab installation requires.
cd /home/git/gitlab # Only one of the following two commands will print something. It # will look like: * google-protobuf (3.2.0) bundle list | grep google-protobuf bundle check | grep google-protobuf
Below we use
3.2.0 as an example. Replace it with the version number
you found above.
cd /home/git/gitlab sudo -u git -H gem install google-protobuf --version 3.2.0 --platform ruby
Finally, you can test whether google-protobuf loads correctly. The following should print 'OK'.
sudo -u git -H bundle exec ruby -rgoogle/protobuf -e 'puts :OK'
gem install command fails you may need to install developer
tools. On Debian:
apt-get install build-essential libgmp-dev, on
yum groupinstall 'Development Tools'.
