Subject: [gentoo-user] installing ffi gem
Date: Thu, 21 Apr 2011 23:59:01
1 I've just tried setting up a new development machine and I'm stuck installing the ffi
2 gem for ruby.
4 According to a bug I found (can't find it now I'm afraid) the gentoo devs do not
5 support installing gems via the gem command and directed the user to use the
6 dev-ruby/ffi package. Unfortnately, that package is absolutely ancient and unusable.
8 Anyway, I've got the ffi library install from portage, but when I try to `gem install
9 ffi`, I get the output seen in the attachement.
11 The same gem installs just fine on an ubuntu box, but...well it's ubuntu and I don't
12 want to use that (besides it's just a VM).
14 I'd really like to get this fixed so I can get started on a new project.
16 Grateful for any help
18 Matt
