-= Patchsets for RVM
+= RVM Patchsets for MRI-Ruby
== About
Over time, I have developed a number of patches to MRI ruby which I use in all my
projects. I maintain them using stgit. This repository provides them as patchsets for RVM.
+They are also frequently merged into the main rvm repository, so usually you can use
+them directly after installing/updating rvm.
== Usage
-First install the patchsets into your RVM path:
+=== Step 1
+To use the a recent version of the patchsets, just update rvm:
+ rvm get head # OR
+ rvm get stable
+If rvm isn't update to date yet, or you can easily install them from this repository:
* clone the repository to some convenient place
* cd into the top level directory
* run
This will automatically remove old versions of the patchsets.
-Second, reinstall the rubies you want to patch:
+=== Step 2
+Reinstall the rubies you want to patch:
rvm reinstall 1.8.7 --patch railsexpress
rvm reinstall 1.9.2 --patch railsexpress
+ rvm reinstall 1.9.3 --patch railsexpress
Alternatively, you can pass the ruby version to reinstall to the install script:
- ./ 1.8.7 1.9.2
+ ./ 1.8.7 1.9.2 1.9.3
IF you don't want to mess up your vanilla rubies, pass a -n flag to rvm when installing
the patches:
rvm reinstall 1.8.7 --patch railsexpress -n railsexpress
rvm reinstall 1.9.2 --patch railsexpress -n railsexpress
+ rvm reinstall 1.9.3 --patch railsexpress -n railsexpress
This will then require you to specify the ruby version for rvm like so:

Note that the patch contained in patch level 359 fixes a serious bug in the ruby
