I am in the process of installing Ruby on Rails on AIX 5L 5.2. I was unable to compile Ruby but successfully found a set of binaries for AIX 5.1 which I deployed and tested. The Ruby tutorial I walked through using these binaries worked flawlessly. So I tired to install Gems using the ruby setup.rb command and I get the following error: <snippet> <--- lib/rubygems/ digest <--- lib/ rubygems <--- lib /usr/local/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/powerpc-aix220.127.116.11/digest/md5.so: load failed - /usr/local/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/powerpc-aix18.104.22.168/digest/md5.so (LoadError) from /usr/local/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/ custom_require.rb:27:in `require' </snippet> I am not familar with AIX (or any flavor of Unix for that matter) but I need to get Ruby on Rails running in this environment if possible. Any ideas on how to resolve the load failure on the md5.so object? Is it because the binaries are for AIX 5.1 and I am running AIX 5.2?
