#1

Hi, does anyone know if Ruby has been ported to the zSeries Linux
platform and what its status is?

Thanks.

I have built it without any problem in a 31bit VM and will be doing
the same in a 64bit one next week. This was on a SLES VM. I did not
use a ruby package, but had no problem doing the build.

It is certainly available as a package for SuSE Linux Enterprise Server,
as
part of the SLE SDK -

And this updated package notification would confirm it is -

I know some folks have been using JRuby on zSeries for a few apps.

I’m on Fedora VM, hopefully I won’t have any trouble building it as
well. What I’d really like to do is to be able to run Rails on that
platform eventually.
