Installing Ruby 1.8.6 on Ubuntu Feisty Fawn (7.04)
Ubuntu seems to be the big distro these days. (Remember all of those other “it” distros? Slackware? The original Red Hat? Mandrake? I am vaguely tired of the trendiness of distros.)
Anyway, there is no package yet for Ruby 1.8.6 on Ubuntu Feisty Fawn (7.04), which is unfortunate, since mongrel_cluster doesn’t work properly under Ruby 1.8.5.
The install steps I got at Urban Puddle (here) were nice, but Rails still wasn’t happy: I kept getting that awful
`require’: no such file to load – rubygems (LoadError) error.
Here’s what I did to fix it. YMMV.
Building Ruby (from Urban Puddle):
tar xjvf ruby-1.8.6.tar.bz2 cd ruby-1.8.6 apt-get build-dep ruby1.8 ./configure --prefix=/usr make sudo make install
Next, to fix it:
cd /usr/src/rubygems/rubygems-0.9.4 sudo ruby setup.rb
Et voilà :
max@somehost:~ $ irb irb(main):001:0> require 'rubygems' => true
I’m not quite sure why the Ruby source doesn’t ship with the rubygems source. Is it because rubygems is still a < 1.0 release?
