Installing additional patches after 186-26 on Windows


#1

Hi.

I’m completely new to ruby. I’m installing Ruby to start playing with
it.

I’ve installed the Ruby 1.8.6 One-Click Installer from
http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/downloads/

I also downloaded the 2 patches; Ruby 1.8.7-p72 and Ruby 1.9.1-p0.

Should these be simply copied over the top of C:\ruby?

Or is there an installation process I’m not seeing.

Regards,

Richard Quadling.

Hi Richard,

Best thing I’d recommend is just to do a gem update. 1.9 is a newer
release of ruby and not just a bug fix so not all gems will work with
it. As you’re on Windows you’ll probably want to wait till the new
one-click-installer has been finalised.

Gem update --system
Gem update
