Problems with SRPM of ruby-1.8.4


#1

I’m building ruby-1.8.4 on CentOS4 (clone of RHEL4) and I ran into a
couple of problems. First, the build requires libX11-devel which isn’t
available for CentOS4 and doesn’t seem to be needed. Second, the build
uses yacc, but it is not listed as a requirement.

Very minor problems, but I thought y’all shoul know.

Whose SRPMs are these? I don’t think there’s official ones…

Hi,

your error message looks like you are using the packages from Fedora
Core 5, which includes libX11-devel. Recently, 1.8.4 has been added to
updates for Fedora Core 4. Take this SRPM and it shall work.

Best regards,
Oliver
