Hi, I have Ruby 1.8 installed (on Linux) in /usr/local/bin/. I want to have a copy of a Ruby 1.9 snapshot around too, so I can try out stuff out with that. But I can't figure out how to install it in a different location. I've altered the "prefix" variable in the Makefile, but when I do a "make install", it just overwrites my Ruby 1.8 installation in /usr/ local/bin. I imagine there is a simple solution to this. Can anyone share it? David Flanagan

Hi, In message "Re: How do I install both Ruby 1.8 and Ruby 1.9?" on Tue, 6 Feb 2007 15:45:09 +0900, email@example.com writes: |I have Ruby 1.8 installed (on Linux) in /usr/local/bin/. | |I want to have a copy of a Ruby 1.9 snapshot around too, so I can try |out stuff out with that. Try supplying --program-suffix to configure. I use --program-suffix=1.9 for 1.9. matz.

run ./configure --help to see all the options usually, i do: configure --prefix=/usr/local/opt/ruby/1.9 --program-suffix=.yarv and then symlink what is in /usr/local/opt/ruby/1.9/bin to /usr/local/bin . hope this helps, vlad
