ruby on rails - rails - RVM ruby installation errors-Mac




rvm install ruby (6)

Consider installing OSX GCC, it will solve many of the problems occurred from Xcode installation.

https://code.i-harness.com

I have tried to install each of the following three versions of Ruby via RVM, each with their own set of errors. I'm more concerned with getting the last one working so I'll focus on that.

rvm install 1.8.7
rvm install 1.9.2
rvm install 1.9.3

rvm install 1.9.3 (bash output)

Specs and short summary of steps I have taken MacBook Air 13-inch, Mid 2011 Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 (11C74)

  • Installed RVM
  • Tried to install ruby via rvm
  • Figured there may be an xcode / gcc compiler problem, so installed xcode from app store
  • Tried again to install ruby via rvm, failed
  • Tried to reinstall xcode incase the installation didn't complete properly
  • Exported GCC to path as suggested by someone who experienced a similar problem
  • Tried again to install ruby via rvm, failed

If anyone has any suggestions I'd be grateful.

Thanks guys.

Did you install libyaml package before installing ruby 1.8.7?

Since rvm is showing a Error running 'make, you should also install readline package using

rvm pkg install readline

You should install all the necessary rvm packages before installing any version of ruby. If you have installed any version of ruby before installing those packages, you should remove them using

rvm remove 1.8.7
rvm remove 1.9.2
rvm remove 1.9.3

And then install them again using

rvm install 1.8.7
rvm install 1.9.2
rvm install 1.9.3


I used homebrew to install GCC-4.2, then symlinked it from /usr/local/bin to /usr/bin. This fixed this issue for me.


This is most likely related to the gcc you are using. Have you tired to use non llvm gcc compiler? You will most likely find it under /Xcode4/usr/bin/gcc-4.2

so:

$> export CC=/Xcode4/user/bin/gcc-4.2 && rvm install 1.8.7

Hope this helps.


rvm install 1.9.3 --with-gcc=clang
