wxRuby 1.9.7 released

Hi

wxRuby 1.9.7 is now available from rubyforge. This release is mainly to
restore one-step gem installation for Windows users, so they can easily
benefit from the many enhancements and fixes that were included in
1.9.6. The gem will now install Microsoft’s VC version 8.0 dlls. As
usual ‘gem install wxruby’ should get you the latest version.

For users on Linux and OS X, there are only minimal changes. The
ChangeLog for this version is:

  • Restored Grid#set_col_label_text_orientation method (AF)
  • Fixed linking to wx_media with different wx build flavours on OS X
    (AF)
  • Fixed misnaming of Wx::NULL_ANIMATION constant (AF)
  • Added bundling of MSVC80 dlls for windows gem (AF)
  • Added a drag and drop / clipboard sample (AF)

Under WinXP SP2 with ruby 1.8.6 I used

gem update wxruby

and gem told it was installed.
But immediately afterwards gem stopped working!
In fact every program connected to ruby does no longer work!

C:>gem list
Das angegebene Programm kann nicht ausgeführt werden.

C:>ruby --version
Das angegebene Programm kann nicht ausgeführt werden.

C:>irb
Das angegebene Programm kann nicht ausgeführt werden.

Translation: This program can not be executed.

Any idea why and what I can do to restore my ruby?

aargh. to restore your ruby, go to the “bin” folder where the ruby
executable is, and delete “ruby.exe.manifest” and “rubyw.exe.manifest”.

Are you using the one-click installer ruby?

sorry for the trouble

It worked. After deleting the two files ruby, rubygems and irb started
working again.

But, I’m sorry to report, wxruby does not.
When I start any sample, I get the following error message:

=====
Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime Error!
Program: C:\Programme\ruby\bin\ruby.exe
R6034
An application has made an attempt to load the C runtime library
incorrectly. Please contact the application’s support team for more
information.

Yes.
I installed with One-Click Ruby Installer 186-26 Final Release:
C:>ruby --version
ruby 1.8.6 (2007-09-24 patchlevel 111) [i386-mswin32]

Maybe it would be better to retract the gem before you get flooded with
complaints.

Hope this helps

That’s the error I’d expect to see. The manifests fix that on two
systems I’ve tried it on, and others have confirmed it. But clearly not
working for you, and I’ve no idea why.

I have done. I was uncomfortable anyway with having the gem installer
adjust global ruby settings, but it would have been worth it if it
worked reliably.

Sorry for the trouble anyway. I’m SO fed up with this situation. We put
months of work into improving the library, then can’t share those
improvements with the majority of Windows users.

I haven’t got access to this at home, but I did get wxruby 1.9.6 working
on
windows XP, by following the instructions about installing the dll’s and
moving the manifests given under the ‘FIX for wxruby-1.9.6 on Windows’
thread on this mailing list. I didn’t do much beyond check whether it
worked, though.

I have found installing on Linux is not universally successful. I run
into
the ‘GLIBC_2.4 not found’ error when installing 1.9.7 on a Debian system
(I
particularly want to use this on my Asus Eee). A bit of searching on
the
internet doesn’t show any quick solution. Is this something that could
be
fixed in the distributed gem? I may try compiling wxruby myself when I
get
a chance.

Then again, it seems to work very well on Ubuntu 8. I do get occasional
crashes or freezes, which are perhaps more due to my ignorance. I shall
post an example in a separate thread.

Peter.
