Fink install of Ruby under MacOS X.2.6

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Yvon Thoraval, Sep 21, 2003.

  1. I've installed Ruby 1.8 using fink on my iBook :

    ruby 1.8.0-1 Symlinks to ruby1.8
    ruby18 1.8.0-1 Interpreted, object-oriented scripting language
    ruby18-dev 1.8.0-1 ruby static library
    ruby18-shlibs 1.8.0-1 ruby shared libraries
    ruby-dev 1.8.0-1 Compatibility package

    by the end of install step i get the following :

    Selecting previously deselected package ruby18-dev.
    Unpacking ruby18-dev (from .../ruby18-dev_1.8.0-1_darwin-powerpc.deb)
    ....
    dpkg: error processing ruby-dev (--install):
    no package named `ruby-dev' is installed, cannot configure
    Setting up ruby18-shlibs (1.8.0-1) ...
    Setting up ruby18 (1.8.0-1) ...
    Setting up ruby (1.8.0-1) ...
    Setting up ruby18-dev (1.8.0-1) ...
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    ruby-dev
    ### execution of dpkg failed, exit code 1
    Failed: can't batch-install packages:
    (rewritten for clarity)
    path="/sw/fink/dists/unstable/main/binary-darwin-powerpc/languages/"
    [path]ruby-dev_1.8.0-1_darwin-powerpc.deb
    [path]ruby18_1.8.0-1_darwin-powerpc.deb
    [path]ruby_1.8.0-1_darwin-powerpc.deb
    [path]ruby18-shlibs_1.8.0-1_darwin-powerpc.deb
    [path]ruby18-dev_1.8.0-1_darwin-powerpc.deb

    and the final "Done"
    then i've typin :

    iB:~> ruby --version
    ruby 1.8.0 (2003-08-04) [powerpc-darwin]

    seems to be correct.

    however i wonder about the error for ruby-dev which as been archived and
    not installed.

    what kind of test could be done in order to verify this fresh install ?
