Ruby Installation Issue

Hello.

I’m looking to install Ruby on my hosting, which is a Linux VPS
server.

I have SSH access and was following this guide:
http://xmlareas.com/ruby-rails-howto.html

The problem is, there’s no GCC compiler on my server. I tried google
for a solution but didn’t find much. Can anyone help, please?

Thanks,
wd01

What’s the distribution?

It’s Fedora Core, that’s all I know from my hosting company. I don’t
know which version.

yum install ruby or yum install ruby-1.8

Otherwise, you should seek out the Fedora community:

Thanks for the advice. Upon more investigation I’ve discovered that
the installation of Fedora is bare-bones to say the least!

It’s a server, after all. The hoster doesn’t want a hijacked system
right from the start, after all :wink:

It’s actually a sign of a good hoster, if they stripped down the install
to a bare minimum.
