ROR on solaris?


#1

Can someone tell me if ruby on rails will run on solarisx86. And if so,
do you know where I might find some instructions for installing it on
solaris. I have been unable to find very much information in regards to
this.

If Ruby runs on Solaris, which I’m pretty sure it does, then Rails
should work on Solaris (as it’s pure Ruby).

I don’t see why not. You can get compilers for C from
sunfreeware.com, so building ruby should be no problem, and then
rubygems and so rails should install without too much trouble.

Well, I’m using it on sun-sparc-solaris2.9, if that’s worth knowing.

Hello All,

I would suggest http://www.blastwave.org for the ruby pkg, then install 

gem
from source. Its pretty much painless once you have installed gem. Its a
simple
thing to instal RoR. If blastwave doesn’t support X86 Solaris, then you
can head
over to Sun.com and download for free their Sun Studio 11. This has a
C/C++
compiler which you can use to compile ruby.

Cheers,

Aly.

I’m also interested in this as this is the target for my ROR project
deployment. I have a new x2100 that I haven’t setup yet, so if anyone
runs into any issues deploying on x86, I would appreciate knowing.
Also, I did see the sunfreeware.com Ruby 1.8.3 announcement. :slight_smile:

Looks like there’s an x86 ruby-1.8.3 package for you on sunfreeware.com.

I am on sun-sparc-solaris2.9 without any problems…

ruby-1.8.3 -don’t use the one from http://www.blastwave.org

Blastwave is still at 1.8.1 (last time I checked.) I ended up
compiling Ruby 1.8.3 on my S10 (sparc) workstation, installed gems and
then completed the installation of rails through gems. It’s working
pretty good so far. I don’t see any issues with doing the same with an
x86 box (maybe I should try it in the lab.)

I had a look for the helluvit and found on

http://www.sun.com/software/solaris/freeware/

that it comes with ruby 1.6.4, so you’d need to upgrade to 1.8.2 or 3
to run rails, I believe.
