After to install the ruby 1.8.7 patch level 22 on ubuntu 8.04 hardy
succefully.Then I tryed to install rubygems 1.2 in sequence and I
received this error message:

xyz@xyz: /usr/local/src/rubygems-1.2.0$ sudo ruby setup.rb
/lib/rubygems/spec_fetcher.rb:1:in `require’: no such file to load –

You need to compile and install ruby again from source, but this time
with the zlib development package installed (I think it’s called
“zlib1g-dev” or something like that; I don’t have an Ubuntu machine
handy right now)

This is so that Ruby can build its own zlib extension.

I imagine you compiled ruby 1.8.7 from source, as it’s not a standard
Hardy package. If not, how did you install it? Was it from some
non-standard repository? If so, perhaps their package is broken.

I tried many kind of commands like for uninstall and re-compile ruby:

sudo apt-get remove ruby libruby libruby1.8 ruby1.8 irb rdoc ri
sudo aptitude remove ruby
sudo dpkg --list | grep ruby, dpkg -r
and through Synaptic too

and when I invoke ruby or irb, this commands works normally…

Thanks again Brian

I compiled ruby from source in the first time.

sudo apt-get install gcc g++ build-essential
cd /usr/src
sudo wget ftp://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/1.8/ruby-1.8.7-p22.tar.bz2
sudo tar -jxvf ruby-1.8.7-p22.tar.bz2
cd /ruby-1.8.7-p22
sudo ./configure
sudo make
sudo make install

ruby -v

ruby 1.8.7 (2008-06-20 patchlevel 22) [i686-linux]) …it’s ok

cd /usr/src
sudo wget http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.php/38646/rubygems-1.2.0.tgz
sudo tar -zxvf rubygems-1.2.0.tgz
cd rubygems-1.2.0
sudo ruby setup.rb

Doesn’t work…

After I install using

sudo apt-get install ruby rdoc ri irb libyaml-ruby libzlib-ruby ri
ruby1.8-dev

or

sudo apt-get remove ruby rdoc ri irb libyaml-ruby libzlib-ruby ri
ruby1.8-dev

sudo apt-get install ruby rubygems irb ri rdoc ruby1.8-dev
build-essential

or

sudo apt-get autoremove ruby ruby rubygems irb ri rdoc ruby1.8-dev

sudo apt-get install -y ruby1.8 ri1.8 rdoc1.8 rake irb1.8

Now look in ext/zlib/mkmf.log - that will probably tell you why the zlib
extension isn’t being built. Post it here if it doesn’t make sense.

Do you definitely have the zlib1g-dev package installed?

Hmm, perhaps you also need libssl-dev installed. Try that.
