Hello Debian Ruby users,
I have seen many complaints on this list that the debian ruby packages
are split into several small
components, which makes it a pain to get a ‘genuine’ ruby install.
Though this is not about to change
(for many reasons, all too long to fit here), I’ve uploaded to the
unstable distribution a dependency
package, ruby-full, that should pull in all the required dependencies to
get a decent Ruby experience.
The only exception is the Ruby/Tcl bindings, which are only recommended.
If any debian users doesn’t seem to be able to use some of ruby’s
parts, please install ruby-full.
And then, if that doesn’t work yet, you can ask your question here.
