= 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

== Caveats
* The 1.9.3 patches heave not received a lot of testing. Use at your own risk!
