JRuby is available at our website, but it is also available in many distributions. This page documents all the brave souls who help package up JRuby and distribute it via various packaging technologies. Currently, the best way of installing JRuby for POSIX systems is: rbenv or RVM. Using Linux packages is not so flexible.
