    I'm following instructions "Install Alongside Ruby 1.8.x- -Upgrading to
    Ruby 1.9.1" at
    http://ruby.about.com/od/newinruby191/ss/install191.htm

    I'm sitting in the dir where I've unpacked the source, and I'm now
    trying to run the configuration script. But...it appears to be an
    unknown entity - to wit:

    $ sudo ./configure --program-suffix=19
    sudo: ./configure: command not found

    I don't know what to do at this point. Suggestions?

    t.

    A file called "configure" is definitely in the directory, and it has
    script in it.

    Hi,

    Are you sure you're in the right directory?
    Is 'configure' executable?
    Can you try without sudo (which isn't necessary for configure to run
    anyway)?

    Regards,

    Denis

    I figured out that THAT was the issued, got it working fine, and just
    now saw your email. I'm evidently still afflicted by Windows brain
    death. Or maybe...well, we won't go there.

    Thanks for your help. I'm flying now.
