try with both stable and head - if both fail please provide a gist of:

rvm --trace install 1.9.2

on stable:
still got stuck. Trace here:

on head, got 1.16.6 installed and it worked fine.

So the issue is fixed on head? ... all the simple changes were merged back to stable so I guess one of the bigger changes did the trick, for now please stick with rvm head.

I have the same problem and I can't get it to work using rvm head. Here's a trace and rvm debug info :

@jbourassa can you run this:

rvm get head
rvm reload
rvm pkg install libyaml

It should be already fixed with the last commit.

Right, libyaml works, thanks for the fix =). I am still having other issues though =/

I managed to compile with rbenv so I am not in a hurry but you may still want to look in this issue.
