    Hello list!

    Anybody who uses Ruby on an AIX machine (version 5.2 or higher)?
    Just in case I have to work with such a system in the near future ...

    Thanks for some info!
    Best regards,

    I've been using Ruby on AIX (both 4.3 and 5.2) and it hasn't been easy.

    Actually the latest release of 1.8.2 compiled for me perfectly, except
    for the Socket library. This is a problem I'm yet to figured out.

    Hello Austin!

    Thanks for the answer.
    So i can use the README instructions to compile and install Ruby? Or
    does i have to use some "tricks" to get it done? If you figured the
    Socket library problem out, let me (and the list) know!

    Greetings,
    Andreas

    I also use Ruby in AIX, but I have problems every now and then.
    I have 66 RS/6000 (AIX) servers and I have problems with many of then
    installing Ruby. Furthermore, on the system running AIX 5.2, I can't
    get socket support.
    So, since I work on a distributed environment where we distribute the
    same scripts to every server, and since Ruby refuse to work on every
    server, I had to remove it from all. Too bad since I really like Ruby.
    So, I went back to Korn Shell and Perl.
    Oh well, the story of my life.

    A sad story. Really. Sorry for you.

    Is someone currently working on a "port" for Ruby on AIX?
    This would be *really* great ... a working socket library on AIX in the
    future.

    Please let me know what you find out, I'm trying to build ruby on AIX 5.1.
    If I can get it to work, I should be able to get it added to the standard
    image here at work. Since this would make Ruby readily available to
    several thousand folks, it would be a very good thing. I already have
    some engineers here who want to use it.

    I have successfully compiled socket.so on AIX 4.3.3 and ruby 1.8.2.
    (1) run configure script with '--disable-ipv6'.
    (2) add '-eInit_socket' to DLDFLAGS in 'ext/socket/Makefile'.

    ./configure --disable-ipv6
    vi ext/socket/Makefile
    make

    A very very simple one liner runs successfully:
    ruby -rsocket -e "p Socket"

    But, sorry, I have not test whether it actually works or not.
    I don't know how to use it.

    Ok, that seems to work on AIX 5.1. However, it gets a Segmentation fault
    in socket.so when I go to run it. Help?

    I really want to get this working, and while I can't offer a great reward,
    I'll take whoever solves this out for a nice dinner at the next Ruby
    Conference.

    Does it direct the entry point or to export the symbol?
    Anyway, -eInit_foo option is required on AIX in general?

    Can you show the stack trace?

    It directs the entry point.

    > Anyway, -eInit_foo option is required on AIX in general?


    I can't say about other AIX platforms.
    As far as in my environment each extionsion library requires -eInit_foo.

    The following sample works correctly on AIX 5.2 by adding -eInit_socket.

    require 'net/http'
    Net::HTTP.start('www.example.com', 80) { |http|
    response = http.get('/index.html')
    puts response.body
    }

    This cause an error while linking miniruby by passing '-eInit_' to the linker.

    The following obviously unacceptable patch solved the problem.
    It will be available only on AIX....

    What about adding the option to DLDFLAGS instead of ARCH_FLAG?

  16. Ok, the patch didn't seem to work, so I added in a fix that should do the
    same. I'm not sure if I'm using a version anywhere close to what is being
    worked on, I'm using the 1.8.2 tarball. For some reason, "make" winds up
    running configure again so that it ends with:

    configure: creating ./config.status
    MAKE=make /bin/sh ./config.status
    config.status: creating Makefile
    Makefile updated, restart.
    make: The error code from the last command is 1.

    After running "make" again, it fails with:

    cc -g -eInit_ main.o dmyext.o libruby-static.a -ldl -lcrypt
    -lm -o miniruby
    ld: 0711-327 WARNING: Entry point not found: Init_
    Could not load program ./miniruby:
    The program does not have an entry point or
    the o_snentry field in the auxiliary header is invalid.
    Examine file headers with the 'dump -ohv' command.
    make: The error code from the last command is 255.


    Stop.


    The script I use to run this is:

    #!/usr/bin/ksh -x

    VER="ruby-1.8.2"

    rm -rf $VER
    rm -rf $HOME/bin/*

    tar -xf $VER.tar
    cd $VER

    cp configure.in configure.in.tmp
    sed 's/ARCH_FLAGS/ARCH_FLAG/' <configure.in.tmp >configure.in

    /configure --without-gcc --disable-ipv6 --prefix=$HOME

    make
    make || exit
    make test || exit
    make install || exit



    What should I try next?

    If '-eInit_$(TARGET)' is not set, its exit code is non-zero as expected.

    OK. It works fine on AIX 4.3.3.

    testing script is:

    require 'net/http'
    Net::HTTP.start('www.example.com', 80) { |http|
    response = http.get('/index.html')
    puts response.body
    }

    What about Matt's environment?

    Now that I finally have time to work on building Ruby again, it seems to
    work. Thanks for al the wonderful help! You folks are great.

    Here's the very primitive script that I am using to build Ruby on AIX for
    testing (my next goal is to get it added to the standard image):

    #!/usr/bin/ksh -x

    VER="ruby-1.8.2"

    rm -rf $VER
    rm -rf $HOME/ruby/*

    tar -xf $VER.tar
    cd $VER

    cd lib
    cp mkmf.rb mkmf.rb.tmp
    sed 's/OUTFLAG}\$(DLLIB)/OUTFLAG}$(DLLIB) -eInit_\$(TARGET)/' <mkmf.rb.tmp
    >mkmf.rb

    cd ..

    /configure --without-gcc --disable-ipv6 --prefix=$HOME/ruby

    make || exit
    make test || exit
    make install || exit
