debian ruby-dev for 1.8?

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Bob Sidebotham, Oct 10, 2004.

  1. Is there a debian package for ruby 1.8 that's equivalent to the ruby-dev
    package for 1.6? I can't find it. I get:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    ruby-dev: Depends: libruby (= 1.6.7-3woody3) but 1.8.1-8 is to be
    installed
    E: Broken packages

    What I actually need is a version of mkmf.rb. Given that there doesn't
    seem to be a package including this, what's the "right" way to lift it
    from the ruby 1.8 distribution and install it? Of course, there may be
    other files, too, that are included in ruby-dev that should be installed...

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Umm. Yes. That works. I had searched for mkmf.rb on packages.debian.org,
    but I didn't notice I was only searching stable...

    Thank you!
