I recently installed Ruby 1.8.4 on Mac OS X 10.4.7, following
the instructions in
Although irb starts up and runs OK, I am unable to get ri to work
(either within irb or as an external command).
>> ri Proc
Insecure world writable dir /Volumes,
mode 04177/usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/yaml.rb:9:in `require':
no such file to load -- stringio (LoadError)
Ignoring the /Volumes nastygram (Hey, it's a mount point!), it
appears that a require is failing. Hmmm...
Looks pretty good; let's see if the file is there and readable:
% cd /usr/local/lib/ruby
% du -a . | grep stringio.rb
% wc ./1.8/yaml/stringio.rb
83 175 1969 ./1.8/yaml/stringio.rb
At this point, I'm tapped out. Suggestions, anyone?
