Building IronRuby under Mono


#1

Hello,

I’m trying to compile IronRuby under Mono, but I’m receiving a few
errors.
Any ideas?

Try Mono 2.0?


#3

Using Mono 2.0 I was able to build IronRuby but it’s not working
properly:

~/code/ruby/ironruby/build/mono_debug$ ./ir.exe
IronRuby 1.0.0.0 on .NET 2.0.50727.42
Copyright © Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

Note that local variables do not work today in the console.
As a workaround, use globals instead (eg $x = 42 instead of x = 42).

3 + 3
unknown: An exception was thrown by the type initializer for
Microsoft.Scripting.SourceCodeReader
(System::TypeInitializationException)

~/code/ruby/ironruby/build/mono_debug$ mono ./ir.exe
~/code/ruby/hello.rb
mscorlib:0:in set_Fallback': Argument cannot be null. (System::ArgumentNullException) from mscorlib:0:in.ctor’
from mscorlib:0:in GetDecoder' from mscorlib:0:inInitialize’
from mscorlib:0:in .ctor' from mscorlib:0:in.ctor’

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Antonio

I’m curious… I’m running into a number of issues just compiling… is
this
from the SVN or Git repo?

He is using old SVN version. The latest doesn’t compile for me.
