Installing RubyGems on arm architecture

I try a manual installation of RubyGems (ruby setup.rb), and I get a
string of errors.

The most interesting one seems to be:

/opt/QtPalmtop/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:29:
in `require’: libcrypto.so.0.9.6: cannot load shared object file: No
such file or directory -
/opt/QtPalmtop/lib/ruby/1.8/arm-linux/digest/md5.so (LoadError)

What is my next step to track down the problem?

Well, that looks like a shared library that’s part of OpenSSL. On my
Debian Etch system, it’s part of the libssl0.9.8 and also the
libssl0.9.7 packages.

Sorry – I was talking about libcrypto.so.

So, you’ll want to make sure you’ve got OpenSSL installed, and then
try installing RubyGems again. You may even have to rebuild Ruby after
installing OpenSSL (so it detects it during its configure phase) –
and then try installing RubyGems.

Note, I’ve got no experience with ARM. Are you using Debian?

I found a packager who has been working on this very same problem.
I’m going to work with him to troubleshoot his package and get it
working for me as well.

There is no change after having installed libssl. I can confirm that
libcrypto.so is where I would expect it to be.

I suppose the next step is to build Ruby from scratch, but that’s
really more advanced than I wanted to get. I’ve never done any
compiling on this system, or cross-compiling before. =/

No I’m not using Debian. I think the setup defies description
somewhat. It’s a palmtop device.
