I’m running Ubuntu 6.10 on a Vaio laptop.
This is in the second stop of building racc, when one issues: ruby
Any help would sure be appreciated.
I’ll assume you mistyped the filename ("/config.h", not “.config.h”),
and that you installed ruby via an ubuntu package. There’s a handy
tool in ububtu called apt-file (“apt-get install apt-file” if you
don’t have it yet), which lets you search the contents of packages you
g@bang:~$ apt-file search /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/i486-linux/config.h
Aha! Try “apt-get install ruby1.8-dev”.
At a broader level, though, Debian/Ubuntu’s packaging of ruby is quite
a PITA. If you want a complete distribution of “standard” ruby (nods
suggestively), I think you should install these packages:
g@bang:~$ grep-dctrl -s Binary -SX ruby1.8 /var/lib/apt/lists/*Sources
| sed -e ‘s/Binary: //’ -e ‘s/, /\n/g’ | sort -u
Or, just compile it from source…
