A Ruby 1.9.2-p# spec for CentOS/RHEL 5/6 based systems.

branch: master
README.md

What is this spec?

This spec is an attempt to push for a stable replacement of Ruby 1.8.x with 1.9.2+ on RHEL based systems. I have based it off of the work of FrameOS specs for Ruby 1.9.2 and Ruby Enterprise Edition.

How to install

RHEL/CentOS 5/6

yum install -y rpm-build rpmdevtools readline-devel ncurses-devel gdbm-devel tcl-devel openssl-devel db4-devel byacc
rpmdev-setuptree
cd ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES
wget http://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/1.9/ruby-1.9.2-p320.tar.gz
cd ~/rpmbuild/SPECS
wget https://raw.github.com/imeyer/ruby-1.9.2-rpm/master/ruby19.spec
rpmbuild -bb ruby19.spec
rpm -Uvh ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/ruby-1.9.2p320-1.ruby-1.9.2p320-1.i386.rpm

PROFIT!

What it does

  • Builds
  • Installs
  • Overwrites/upgrades your currently installed ruby package (DANGEROUS)

What it does not do

  • Split packages into ruby-libs, ruby-devel, etc (looking for help here)
  • Install alongside Ruby 1.8.x

Requirements

  • EPEL Yum repository (for rpmdev-setuptree)

Distro support

Tested working (as sane as I could test for) on:

  • RHEL 5.x x86_64
  • RHEL 6.x x86_64
  • RHEL 6.x i686
  • CentOS 5.x x86_64
  • Scientific Linux 6.x x86_64

Personal thoughts

This is by no means, correct, or sane. Nor does it follow any sort of policy for packaging. I leave that to the people who are most familiar with such things, and will willingly accept patches that add those features.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
