Finding digest/md5.so and compiling ruby cleanly

Hi All,

I need tips on how to compile ruby cleanly (Linux ubuntu dapper 6.06 and
ruby’s stable-snapshot). I screwed up my compilation and now ruby
cannot_ load digest/md5.so. (i recompiled again, still cannot load).
This happened after i removed /usr/local/lib/ruby directory; thinking of
course that it’s better to recompile from a clean scratch.

Any tips on the md5.so not loading/(or creating)? (I don’t have my pc w
me now, but i’m gathering tips so when i get home, i’d know what to do).

thanks in advance.

kind regards -botp

ok, fyi only, just in case others may encounter this problem. i just
found out that the snapshot has problems installing/finding the
extension (be it md5, sha, readline, etc).

solution: i reinstalled (back) using the (older) the stable release
1.8.5.

something is wrong with the stable-snapshot. i don’t think it is stable
enough … (or maybe snapshots are for upgrades only…)
