I have a question about installation ruby applications on a linux system.
I am discussing with other ruby developers about the correct path where to
install all the ruby files.
We don´t want to create one big file with rbasm, or using the
tar-ruby-scripts to create a tar archive. We simply wanna install all the
ruby files, we have
We are using setup.rb for our installations. But the problem is:
We have some files, that are really usable as modules. So these files can
be installed to /usr/lib/ruby/site-ruby and so on.
But what about files, which are not very usable as modules? E.g. the GUI
of a program? (We are using ruby-gnome) Should these files be installed in
the ruby dir too?
We thought about using a directory in /bin. E.g.:
Or maybe /usr/lib/myapp? Or /usr/share/myapp/lib?
Do you have any idea, what is the right path to do this? Or maybe a mixed
way: Using rbasm to create one big file for the gui and placing it in /bin
and copying all other files, which can be modules to the ruby-dir?
Or simply copying all files to the ruby-dir?
Maybe you have any idea for us, how to install the apps correctly There
is no common way, to do this, right?
