Have you tried using your package manager?

Whenever you ask a question you should tell us the distro, arch, and version. With RH make sure to tell us if it is a straight RH version(not supported since 2003) or a RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux Version). Assuming RHEL5.X: yum install ruby

Many ruby-related packages can be installed via yum:

* ruby
* ruby-devel
* rubygem-rails
* rubygem-mongrel
* ruby-irb
* ruby-libs
* ruby-rdoc
* ruby-ri
* rubygems
* ruby-sqlite3
* ruby-mysql
* ruby-postgres
* ruby-clearsilver
* ruby-racc
* subversion-ruby
* ruby-docs

Have look at for some not so recent, but still adequate information.


Arch Linux
