Ruby, I could tear my hair out!!
It’s probably not what you think; Ruby dog’s fine, it’s the computer Ruby I’m just about to rant about.
When I last used Linux the main stumbling block was Ruby - or the version manager incompatibilities with what I needed to do. It’s no different this time around with the Raspberry Pi.
The credit-card-sized computer comes with Ruby 1.8. The stuff I want to use requires at least 1.9.3 (I think), so I opted to install 2.0.0. No matter what I did, when I’ve set it all up and it reports 2.0.0 and I try to install Jekyll, Jekyll reports that
listen requires at least 1.9.3.
So I reset the bloody thing for a second consecutive night and I’m off to bed!
Maybe the Raspbian Debian thing isn’t up to the task and I need something with a little more ‘oomph!’
At this point I’ll take suggestions from anyone!
- Get rid of Ruby 1.8 completely,
- Reinstall RVM and Ruby 2.0.0.
- Install Jekyll!!
- Install sqlite3 prior to
- Gogs - a Git repo manager.
Not a big list is it.
