Hi, all. I am sure that some of yours have had headaches to use ruby on aix platforms. we can find out lots of problems related aix installation steps by googing. some peoples discussed about zlib problems, core dump, tcl/tk, ....etc. In my case, I am using 1.8.7 p160 for aix. but ruby is working normally, but, gem always killed himself by core dump. so, If you have know the most stable version ruby for aix, let me know it :) thanks for all. ps ) my tools are using diff-lcs, tcl/tk lib, treetop. etc.. situation I met ) $ gem install treetop ..../lib/ruby/1.8/timeout.rb:59: [BUG] Segmentation fault ruby 1.8.7 (2009-04-08 patchlevel 160) [powerpc-aix22.214.171.124] IOT/Abort trap (core dumped)

Hi, I think core team do not have AIX. So, if we (AIX users) want to use ruby on AIX, we need to solve issues by ourselves. This is just my thought. Anyway, I can not recreate your issue. Here is some output from my machine: % ruby -v ruby 1.8.7 (2009-04-08 patchlevel 160) [powerpc-aix126.96.36.199] % gem --version 1.3.3 % gem install treetop Successfully installed polyglot-0.2.5 Successfully installed treetop-1.2.5 2 gems installed Installing ri documentation for polyglot-0.2.5... Installing ri documentation for treetop-1.2.5... Installing RDoc documentation for polyglot-0.2.5... Installing RDoc documentation for treetop-1.2.5... I have not used treetop so far, but I just tried to install. I'm not sure if I can help you, I can tell you the difference of environment. What kind of compilers( and its versions) did you use to build ruby? What options did you use when you built ruby? I use xlc 9/gcc 4.2.3, and use --enable-shared and --prefix By the way, what is zlib problems?

sorry for late response. I am using gcc 4.2.4. this is installed by a package. and zlib problem meant whenever I start to a ruby/tk application, I met like " no found to zlib " errors. However, I checked zlib has been already installed. (anyway this problem is solved. :) I can solve this by installing zlib in ruby and a with-zlib option) this is an option I used. ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-tcl-dir=/usr/local --with-tk- dir=/usr/local --with-tcllib=tclstub8.5 --with-tklib=tkstub8.5 -- enable-tcltk_stubs at the same time, I installed tcl and tk before installing ruby with this option. ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --enable-shared by your suggestion, i will update ruby to p160 and then update gem. :)
