Installing Ruby on Raspberry Pi/ARM

Post by russell_jt » 2016/11/27 22:50:14

I am trying to install Ruby on my Raspberry Pi 3 running Centos. However I receive the following error trying to install Ruby.

Code: Select all

[root@centos-rpi3 test]# yum install ruby
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
base                                                               | 3.6 kB  00:00:00

extras                                                             | 2.9 kB  00:00:00

Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
No package ruby available.
Error: Nothing to do
Is there a version of Ruby available, and how may I go about installing it?

Yes, ruby fails to rebuild correctly on armhfp. In fact it builds fine, but the integrated tests fail and so failing the rpm build process
See the build log here : http://armv7.dev.centos.org/rpmbuild/c7 ... /build.log

Hi arrfab,

Thanks for your response - apologies I haven't been using Linux too long. Is there a workaround available? Are you saying that I have to build from source, and although the tests fail it will still build successfully?

Many thanks
Russell

Hi,

Is there any updates on this thread?

Ruby is a very important package for a lot of features such as ffmpeg. Without it, all of this packages cannot be built in CentOS on Raspberry Pi.
