YARV for ArchLinux


#1

Had some minutes to spend today and thought it would be pretty neat to
have
YARV (as announced on
http://redhanded.hobix.com/cult/yarvMergedMatz.html) on
ArchLinux, so i went ahead and created a little PKGBUILD :slight_smile:

one can find it at AUR (ruby-yarv-svn):
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?do_Details=1&ID=4191

installation as usual (aurbuild, qpkg or makepkg yourself)

Not sure if this belongs to ruby-talk, but for all the ruby-addicted
archers
out there this is pretty good news :slight_smile:
after installation one can use it with ruby_yarv - there are issues with
rubygems as everybody might expect, so calm down a bit - your favorite
gems
won’t run on it (yet).

And it’s also a little reminder for all the other maintainers out there,
build
some packages for YARV, people want to try it and there is no reason why
they
shouldn’t be able to do it :wink:

Not to mention that it would be pretty good advertisement for ruby to
have
something to show off, right?
