Ruby package for Linux


  • Jim Freeze; 2003-09-22, 18:28 UTC:

I’m only a newbie to Linux packages. I have built Ruby many times
from source, for Linux, Sun and FreeBSD. What I don’t know about is
linux packages, hence the questions.

Thanks for the link.

But in anycase, just download ruby-1.8.0 from source and compile it. The
instructions are in the README file.

Boy, what a mess linux is with its multiple versions.
