AIX and Ruby issues (still)

(Molitor, Stephen L) #1

Me four. This is the hold up in getting Ruby approved at our company.
They don't want to approve a Perl scripting replacement unless it runs
on all our machines. Most of our servers are AIX.

I provide sys admin support to over 200 RS/6000 running from AIX 4.3.3
to AIX 5.3.
bullfreeware.com offers a binary for AIX (Ruby 1.8.2 for AIX 5.2 (not
tested)). This is a good start but socket does not work. I have a
small number of ruby 1.6.7 under AIX 4.3.3 with socket support. I need
to be liberated from Korn Shell, but until I get a Ruby build that
works on every server, I have to stick to Korn Shell. All my efforts
to build a working Ruby 1.8.2 or higher on 4.3.3 and 5.3 had been a
big disappointment and frustration.

Anyway, just sharing my frustration!

Autrijus linked me to this; I'm told that it works. I don't have
admin privs on any of our AIX boxes, so I can't try it out. Worth a
shot, though:
http://openafp.org/ruby-1.8.2-aix5.tar.gz

Yes Ths version has no working socket support.
I downloaded and tried it from Autrijus from irc.

Has anyone any new info on the AIX port?

Thanks in Advance
