Does WideStudio require a special ruby build?

I installed the latest version of Ruby and WideStudio (Ruby 1.8.4 and
WideStudio 3.94-1).

I also installed the Ruby that came with WideStudio (Ruby 1.8.0).

So now I have two versions of Ruby and only the one that came with
WideStudio works with WideStudio. So my question is, what’s the
difference? I would like to use WideStudio but I would hate to be tied
into using a special version of Ruby.

What’s your platform and how did you installed them?

How doesn’t it work?

Windows XP.
Ruby 1.8.4 was installed from bash with these commands:
./configure --prefix=c:/ruby
make
make install
WideStudio was installed from setup.exe.

How doesn’t it work?

Here’s the error (Ruby 1.8.4 precedes the widestudio version of Ruby in
my path).

C:\a\hello>ruby hello.rb
./mwt.dll: [BUG] Segmentation fault
ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [i386-cygwin]

  3 [sig] ruby 3576 open_stackdumpfile: Dumping stack trace to

ruby.exe.stac
kdump

If I run the widestudio version of ruby, it works:

C:\a\hello>\WideStudio\ruby\bin\ruby hello.rb

A window appears as expected.

Thanks,
Sean.

What’s the platform of WideStudio version ruby?
What does `\WideStudio\ruby\bin\ruby -v’ show?

What’s that mwt.dll? Is it compatible to cygwin?

I’m new to WideStudio, but i believe mwt.dll is the graphical library
used by WideStudio/MWT. I’m not sure if it’s compatible with cygwin.
I guess I should try to build a ruby-mingw32 version 1.8.4.

Ok, I think I figured it out. Building WideStudio/Ruby apps requires
ruby-mingw32 (meaning ruby built with mingw/msys).

Here’s the steps I took (instructed by Sean O’Halpin):

I installed MinGW Current (MinGW-5.0.3) first, then
MSYS-1.0.11-2004.04.30-1, downloaded and unpacked ruby stable snapshot
(ftp://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/stable-snapshot.tar.gz), fired up
MSYS, entered this:

/configure --prefix=c:/ruby-mingw --enable-shared && make && make
install

ok thanks for your help.

Congraturation.

/configure --prefix=c:/ruby-mingw --enable-shared && make && make
install

On a side note, I don’t recommend to use prefix (especially,
with a drive letter) on Windows, since it is meaningless but
will be embedded in rbconfig.rb.

Use DESTDIR=… at install, instead.
