I’m running CentOS 5.4 - I tried to use yum to install ruby, but the
only version available was 1.8.5. I wanted 1.9.1, so I installed it from
source and everything works fine.
My trouble is that now whenever I try to install other packages via yum
that list Ruby as a dependency, yum doesn’t know I have installed 1.9.1
and keeps asking to install 1.8.5. I don’t want to let that go ahead,
since I don’t want to goof up the 1.9.1 install. Is there any way to get
yum to recognize that I already have 1.9.1 installed and it doesn’t need
to install 1.8.5?
