Fedora Core 2, cPanel and Ruby


#1

Hi,

i have a live server with Fedora Core 2 and cpanel.
I want to install Ruby 1.8.2, so i can use rails, but it has some
dependencies that need to swith the computer to Fedora 3.
It requires a new version of openssl, which breaks dependencies in a LOT
of
packages.
What do you recommend me to do? Update the whole system (how?), use some
kind of chroot to install the new version of ruby…?

Thanks in advance,
Rodrigo.

Hi Rodrigo,

You don’t need to upgrade to FC3. You should be able to just compile
Ruby from source. It’s very easy and should only take you about 20
minutes.

Here’s what I did in a nutshell. If you need more help, just ask :slight_smile:

Ruby, RubyGems, Rails

  1. Go to http://rubyforge.org and find links to latest:
    • Ruby
    • RubyGems
  2. cd /usr/src
  3. wget links from step 1 and decompress
  4. configure, make, make install Ruby
  5. run setup.rb in RubyGems directory
  6. gem install rails --include-dependencies

FastCGI, Ruby-FastCGI Bindings

  1. Go to http://www.fastcgi.com/dist/ and find the latest
    fcgi-xxx.tar.gz
  2. wget and decompress
  3. configure, make, make install
  4. Go to http://sugi.nemui.org/pub/ruby/fcgi/ and find latest
    ruby-fcgi-xxx-tar.gz
  5. wget and decompress
  6. ruby install.rb config
  7. ruby install.rb setup
  8. ruby install.rb install

– Test it out –

irb

require ‘fcgi’
=> true
exit
