Hello, I would like to upgrade Ruby from 1.8.2 to 1.8.4 on OS X 10.4 and am wondering if there's a binary (dmg) file I can use to save me compiling. I'm sure I used one when I installed 1.8.2. Does anybody know of a dmg file for 1.8.4? Thanks in advance. Keith P.

This was created using darwinports -- port mpkg ruby, which creates an installer for ruby and all it's dependencies. It will install to / opt/local. If you ever plan on installing darwinports, be sure to remove this. Note: I've never tested doing this, but I am 90% sure it will work. Packaged: * libiconv-1.10 * openssl-0.9.8a * readline-5.0.005 * zlib-1.2.3 * ruby-1.8.4 Everything should work, unlike the ruby apple ships. ;) http://generalconsumption.org/ruby/ruby-1.8.4.dmg Regards, -- Daniel

Hi Keith, I know it's not exactly what you asked for, but could be off use for someone else. Have you tried this install script from Topfunky (Geoffrey Grossenbach). It worked a treat on my systems [ http://nubyonrails.topfunky.com/articles/2005/12/2... ] It gives you more than just ruby and it's 1.8.4 as well. regards, eyematz
