Install it separately instead of upgrading.

Download the source and ./configure --program-suffix=19

Then you have ruby19, irb19, etc at your disposal.

Just install MacPorts and then install 1.9

Try a port sync, that might help :stuck_out_tongue:

The release version of Ruby 1.9 automatically configures itself to use
ruby19.

Ports is stuck at 1.9.1-preview1.

I would advice at not messing with the preinstalled version[1], as
there is a lot
of software depending on it.

Regards,
Florian

[1]: which is not hard, because it’s outside of the scope where normal
*nix Software messes around.

Hi! I installed ruby19 with macports (1.8.0) on Leopard, but still can’t
use ruby 1.9.

ruby -v: 1.8.6

which ruby: /usr/bin/ruby

.profile:

DELUXE-USR-LOCAL-BIN-INSERT

(do not remove this comment)

echo $PATH | grep -q -s “/usr/local/bin”
if [ $? -eq 1 ] ; then
PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin
export PATH
fi

So, what’s wrong?
Can you please help me? I’m not too good in unix/terminal…

I’m not sure because I installed Ruby 1.9 from source, but others have
said that macports installs ruby 1.1 with the suffix 19, so as not to
conflict with the base install.

If so ruby19 should get you there.

The hot ticket these days for managing multiple versions of Ruby on OS
X and Linux is the rvm gem

http://rvm.beginrescueend.com/

I haven’t tried yet, but probably will look at it myself after I
finish migrating to Snow Leopard.

I had /usr/local/bin in /etc/profile and it was being ignored after
upgrade to SL.

I’ve not investigated why, but by trial and error I discovered that
/etc/paths no honors order (if I am not mistaked it didn’t, or the
system ignored extra entries… don’t remember the exact gotcha but
there was one).

So my /etc/profile, /etc/bashrc and /etc/paths.d are system defaults
now, and just edited /etc/paths to put /usr/local/bin at the top.

Note that for MacPorts it’s /opt/local/bin, not /usr/local/bin.
Also, in OS X the preferred way of setting environment variables is via
.MacOS/environment.plist:
http://developer.apple.com/mac/library/qa/qa2001/qa1067.html

Hope this helps,
-Mario.


I want to change the world but they won’t give me the source code.

I would use RVM (ruby version manager)

gem install rvm
then
rvm-install
and follow the instruktions, you can install multiple ruby
implementations and switch between them on the fly


#12

Add /opt/local/bin to the front of your PATH, that’s where MacPorts
stores
its binaries.

Thanks to all, I’ll try each way, then post back to let you know! Thank
you all again!


#14

Another little question then: how do I know which ruby version is used
by my current rails?
