I would recommend just going with the version of Ruby Ubuntu installs by default and running with that for now, unless there is a specific reason to be running with 1.8.8 for you.

If you change line 5 of version.h from #define RUBY_PATCHLEVEL -1 to #define RUBY_PATCHLEVEL 1 rubygems won't complain. Regards, Troy
