Installing Ruby on Red Hat Enterprise Edition on a Terminal
 
Hi all,

=20

I just got a new VPS running Red Hat Enterprise Edition. Sort of regret
it now, as I've always run things on Debian where I just use the sudo
apt-get install command to get ruby and ruby gems on there. Do any of
you know of resources to get Ruby on Red Hat? I googled, but nothing
came up. Is it just me or shouldn't this be obvious?

I'm running the same setup and I ftp downloaded it from the 1.8.6p111
sources, built it and it installed without a hitch. I then rebuilt
rubygems and life has been wonderful ever since :)

It's hard to learn from "works for me" stories, but the build process
is quite straightforward.

If you are looking for a precompiled Ruby RPM that was tested on RHEL
(by the way, which version?), one place you can get it is the RPM repo
of RubyWorks Production Stack:
http://rubyworks.rubyforge.org/redhat/<version>

It has more than just Ruby, but Ruby RPM is there somewhere, too.

There are Ruby RPM's for most versions of Redhat - someone pointed you
a repository, so I won't go there further.

However, depending on what repositories have already been added to
your
VPS, try this first:

up2date -i ruby

If that doesn't work (doesn't find a package), try:

yum install ruby

Note that you can install and use apt-get on Redhat too if you like:

Actually there really aren't modern ruby rpms for most RedHat
versions. Going back to RHEL 4 isn't really "most" ;) The shop I'm
working at doesn't like to upgrade old installs if they're working
well, so we've got several RHEL 2.1 boxes still.

Anyway, if anyone needs a modern ruby rpm (1.8.6 stable snapshot) for
rather older RHEL installs, like 2.1AS, I made one, and it's doing
pretty well on some production systems (running scripts and such, not
ruby itself running the production software on these boxes).
