Irb and script/console problem

I’ve had a problem with irb and script/console since about mid-summer
and it’s absolutely killing me. In either environment, I’m unable to
use the spacebar. It simply doesn’t register.

I’ve tried using Terminal.app and iTerm and I see the same behavior.

Anyone ever had this problem before? Solutions?

they all work for me…

OSX 10.4.10
ruby 1.8.5 (2007-03-13 patchlevel 35) [i686-darwin8.9.1]
Rails 1.2.3

They used to work for me as well…

OSX 10.4.10
ruby 1.8.6 (2007-03-13 patchlevel 0) [i686-darwin8.10.1]
Rails 1.2.3

I just reinstalled my Ruby-MySQL driver and now MySQL console won’t
accept the space bar, either. I really wish I knew what the hell is
going on.

Responding to my own message. If anyone wants to read about my path
to resolving this problem (in excruciating detail), check the below
link. It’s an embarrassing statement of how little I know about
compiling things and *nix in general. Expect lots of statements about
irb, Ruby versions, and readline.

So far I’ve only resolved my Ruby problem. My MySQL issue still
exists…
