Compiling ruby on AIX 5.3


#1

I just recently went through the fun of getting ruby 1.8.4 to compile on
AIX 5.3, and your error was one of the ones that I struck.

I’ve written up my experience at
http://jroller.com/page/soxbox/?anchor=installing_ruby_1_8_4

In summary, to get ruby to compile, I needed to run:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/ruby184 --disable-ipv6
–with-openssl-include=/opt/freeware/include
–with-openssl-lib=/opt/freeware/lib
–with-zlib-include=/opt/freeware/include
–with-zlib-lib=/opt/freeware/lib
–disable-largefile
find . -name Makefile -exec perl -pi -e ‘s/ -brtl *$//’ {} ;
gmake ruby.imp
make

Hopefully, something similar will get it to run on AIX 4.3.3.

I am getting getting errors and compilation faile when I do “make”
on AIX 4.3.3 while compiling Ruby 1.8.4

Did anybody got this error and what needs to be done for
this problem.
