Hello, I am quite a beginner in the Linux world, so excuse me my ignorance. I tried to compile the wxRuby source files, just as described on the official instruction for Ubuntu users: http://wxruby.rubyforge.org/wiki/wiki.pl?BuildingForUbuntu I have extracted dirs for wxruby-2.0.1 and swig-1.3.38 in the /opt directory. I am using ruby 1.9.2p0 installed via rvm. Everything was going ok, untill rake step for wxRuby. I get the following error: jabaar@satl300:/opt/wxruby-2.0.1/swig$ sudo rake [sudo] password for jabaar: (in /opt/wxruby-2.0.1) NOTE: Gem::Specification#has_rdoc= is deprecated with no replacement. It will be removed on or after 2011-10-01. Gem::Specification#has_rdoc= called from ./rake/rakepackage.rb:44 . Enabling DYNAMIC build Enabling RELEASE build Enabling UNICODE build The following wxWidgets features are not available and will be skipped: PrinterDC /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/rake.rb:2383: command not found: swig -version rake aborted! Could not get version info from SWIG; is a very old version installed?. I installed swig (according to the instruction mentioned above) and I get the following output in terminal for swig -version: jabaar@satl300:/opt/wxruby-2.0.1/swig$ swig -version SWIG Version 1.3.38 Compiled with g++ [i686-pc-linux-gnu] Please see http://www.swig.org for reporting bugs and further information So I assume it is installed allright. I am torturing this installation problem for two days now... Can somebody tell me what I am doing wrong?

Hello Tommy, this seems similar to a bug that a patch I made should have fixed. Please see the second-to-last post in this thread: http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/1246679 Try applying the patch and seeing if it fixes your problem. Alternatively, it looks like Alex committed that patch to the main branch, so you could try downloading the latest revision from SVN. http://rubyforge.org/scm/?group_id=35

I tried applying your patch, but unfortunatelly error stayed the same (I don't know if i used it right, I copied the patch to /opt/wxruby-2.0.1, I ran patch -p0 < patch_name.patch in command line from that directory and got confirmation on modification of some files, so I assumed I did right). I also tried using SVN versions (version 2.0.1 from tag/wxruby2 and trunk version) and it didn't work. If the stable version is some other one, please let me know. I didn't rebuild any other packages (even if I wanted to I wouldn't know how). I get exactly the same results every time. Probably I am doing or have done something wrong during the process, so if you have the idea, where could it be, please let me know. Maybe I should start from the beginning, how to clean up the mess I made then?

To Marvin, As mentioned in the configuration for Ubuntu page in the official wxruby site, I kept swing inside /opt directory. I had also put wxruby directory there.I have the following in my .bashrc (as reccomended in ubuntu instalation site mentioned): PATH=/opt/bin:$PATH LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH GEM_HOME=/home/jabaar/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.2-p0/gems I do all the commands with sudo. $PATH variable has /opt/bin directory $ echo $PATH /home/jabaar/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.2-p0/bin:/home/jabaar/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.2-p0@global/bin: /home/jabaar/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.2-p0/bin:/home/jabaar/.rvm/bin:/opt/bin: /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin: /sbin:/bin:/usr/games

So, if you do $ sudo which swig $ sudo swig -version in another directory than the SWIG installation directory I doubt it would find SWIG. Install SWIG so that the SWIG executable resides at /opt/swig, i.e. you can execute $ /opt/swig/bin/swig -version without error. Then you have to consider that `sudo' may cause environment variables to be reset. For compiling, there’s no need to use `sudo', just do it with normal user privileges (of course you need write access to the directory where you compile wxRuby, I usually do it in /home/quintus/Downloads/wxruby). Prior to compiling, do $ export PATH=/opt/swig/bin:$PATH and ensure that $ which swig $ swig -version report the correct things, i.e. the path to the installed SWIG executable and the correct SWIG version. Without leaving the current shell, compile wxRuby: $ rake $ strip -x lib/wxruby2.so $ rake gem Be prepared that compiling wxRuby can take a looooooong time, even on modern computers. Finally I’d like to ask: _Why_ do you actually want to compile wxRuby? The sole reason I found it necessary was that there was no 64-bit precompiled version of wxRuby 2.0.1. I once provided a precompiled gem to the wxRuby devs, but it seems it still didn’t make it to the RubyGems index.

You were probably right all along, but what turned out to be most important was: Marvin Gülker wrote in post #1043971: > Finally I’d like to ask: _Why_ do you actually want to compile wxRuby? > The sole reason I found it necessary was that there was no 64-bit > precompiled version of wxRuby 2.0.1.

Indeed there was no need for me to compile it by myself, it was just some noob stuff stacked upon each other that make me think it was. Sorry for the inconvinience and thanks for the great advices.

Sorry for the inconvinience and thanks for the great advices. You’re welcome :-). Compiling wxRuby is somewhat special anyway. If you want to learn how to compile software, go for something easier such as Ruby itself.
