Ruby on 64-bit Linux


#1

Hi,

I imagine this topic has been covered before, but I have searched and
looked through the forum and cannot find any mention of it.

I need to run Ruby on a 64-bit Fedora Linux System. When I compile it,
I get an error message that says,

gcc -g -O2 -DRUBY_EXPORT -I. -I. -c file.c
file.c: In function ‘chmod_intrnal’:
file.c:1695: warning: cast from pointer to integer of different size

That is a bit worriesome, but when I run make test, it responds that the
test succeeded.

Is anyone else running Ruby on a 64-bit system? Are there any issues?

Sid

Hi Sid,

I’m currently running Ruby 1.9, and I’ve run 1.8, too, on a 64 bit
Fedora Core 4 system. It’s working fine.

Cheers,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,
Where can I download 64-bit ruby package from. or If I need to compile,
what changes should I make in the sources and in Make files

I am running Ruby 1.8.6 on an AMD Athlon64 X2 with Gentoo Linux 2007.0
and it compiles and links just fine.
