I tied to build 1.9.1 Fedora 12, and neither the p376, nor stable
worked, nor the one linked off of . I had to use the nightly build.
Does that jive with what others are seeing?
BTW.. Jeroen.. why does your repo require bison?
I have a problem packaging gems in my attempts to get ruby-1.9.1 going. Below
is some output describing what the problem is exactly, and really, it is
The following changes have been applied to how a normal Fedora ruby
installation runs, and gems are packaged:
- The search path for ruby is:
$ ruby -e 'puts $:'
- The packaged gems are being installed (by default) in /usr/share/ruby/gems/
- The rubygems package can (supposedly) be obsoleted by ruby-1.9.1's new gem
- The same goes for rake (now also a part of the ruby-1.9.1 family).

I was looking at RVM once or twice, but I haven't really sunk my teeth into it
Since you obviously have some more experience, could you tell me how you would
think this could be enabled/packaged/available on a system-wide and per-
(ccing also to ruby-sig)

As Fedora 13 is to be released within 2 weeks, it is impossible at this
stage to upgrade ruby to 1.8.7.x for Fedora 13.
Currently the leading maintainer of ruby on Fedora, Jeroen van Meeuwen
has some plan to support multiple version of ruby on Fedora 14. If you
are interested in co-maintaining ruby on Fedora or have some idea
for ruby on Fedora, we would appreciate it if you join ruby-sig mailing list:
