Anyone compiled VIM 7.3 with 1.9.2 support?

Hi

Maybe no the best spot to ask this, but difficult to find answers and
I know how much Ruby folk love VIM

Just trying to compule VIM 7.3 with Ruby 1.9.2

There is a thread over here about this:
http://groups.google.com/group/vim_use/browse_thread/thread/30cd7cd7fcb5c779/db93a44f86bdafee?lnk=raot&fwc=1

Any tips would be greatly appreciated

Hi Ned

I have vim compiled with ruby support. Did you have a specific
question? If you are new to compiling your own software I would be
willing to help you but I first need to know a bit about the system
your running. Are you running a Linux distro or *BSD? Is ruby already
on your system? Do you have gcc installed?

Thanks for the replies Stu and Kresimir

I followed the blog post. However I’m on OSX.

I had to install lua (http://devthought.com/2009/03/17/how-to-install-
lua-5-in-mac-os-x-leopard/)

But still got stuck on this error:

dyld: Symbol not found: _environ
Referenced from: /Users/neezer/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.2-p0/lib/
libruby.1.9.1.dylib
Expected in: flat namespace
in /Users/neezer/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.2-p0/lib/libruby.1.9.1.dylib

Looks like this is a known issue … “Vim 7.2 does not support the
integration of Ruby 1.9.x on Snow Leopard.”

So I’ve given up compiling myself. However the suggestion to use
MacPorts is a good one, and it is working now. Although I’m not a
MacPorts fan, it’s saved me lots of pain! Would still love 7.3 and
1.9.2 to configure correctly on Snow Leopard, but doesn’t seem like a
priority for the VIM team just now

thanks!

Hi Ned

I have a mac system here also. I don’t know why vim on macports is still
pre-7.3

In fact it’s pretty old as they had the patch-level over 400 before
they desired to increment the version.

Is there a specific reason you need the newer version?

If I have time later I’ll test it on my system and write simple
instructions on how to compile it by hand.
