Ruby 1.9 build requirements

I have just installed Ubuntu 9.04 Server Edition. I followed the
instructions on the Ubuntu site to build Ruby 1.9
(p243) from scratch. The build appeared to work, but gem installs
complain about missing zlib.

I have found a number of sites that list the prerequisite packages,
but there is some amount of disagreement about what needs to be
installed prior to making Ruby 1.9. Does anyone have a definitive list
of prerequisite packages?

Thanks for your help.

Having problems - I have installed the prequisites, and unzipped the
source package for ruby-1.9.1-p243, and I’m . I’ve installed from source
before, but not ruby 1.9. I cannot get beyond this:

[email protected]:~/software_archive/ruby-1.9.1/ruby-1.9.1-p243$
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-openssl-dir=/usr
–with-readline-dir=/usr --with-zlib-dir=/usr
bash: ./configure: Permission denied
[email protected]:~/software_archive/ruby-1.9.1/ruby-1.9.1-p243$ sudo
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-openssl-dir=/usr
–with-readline-dir=/usr --with-zlib-dir=/usr
sudo: ./configure: command not found
I really don’t understand enough what I’m doing to see the problem.

Can someone help me?

Tks,

Tom

Re: previous email and my problems with ./configure - [email protected]#$##@!

I just cannot remember to make that thing EXECUTABLE. Does make a
difference. Sigh.

Sorry for the stumble.
