[unpack a ruby 1.8.6 tarball and cd into it]
/configure --prefix=/path/to/ruby186
make && make install
/path/to/ruby186/bin/ruby -v

I beleive the one click installer allows installing in different locations.

However, you would have to modify your path when you want to use a
different ruby or not set your path at all and run it by full name.

I suspect there might be problems if you set your path to point to one
version of ruby and run another one as windows use path to look up
shared libraries.

lib/ruby/1.8/e2mmap.rb:51: Use Ruby 1.1 (RuntimeError)
Hi I am trying to start up my application on Windows Vista with Ruby 1.8.6 and the Oniguruma-Patch applied.

Why is Ruby 1.8.6 RC1 more recent than Ruby 1.8.6 Final?
Getting to the Ruby One-click installer for Windows, we may go to http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/downloads/ and then http://rubyinstaller.org/download.html however over there, it seems that Ruby 1.8.6 RC1 (patchlevel 383) is actually more recent than Ruby 1.8.6 RC2 (patchlevel 27) or Ruby 1.8.6 Final (patchlevel 26) If I install them on different machines, the RC1 actually shows a more recent date than RC2 or Final, by using ruby -v What's the rule? Does it go strictly by patchlevel? That is, the patchlevel decides how update it is, instead of whether it is R...

YAML on Ruby 1.8.1 and Ruby 1.8.2
I've written several programs that use YAML to store their configuration files, and I generally run them on Ruby 1.8.2. Occasionally we have a setup with a Ruby 1.8.1 or older version around and noticed that the YAML module on these older versions of Ruby behaves differently from that of 1.8.2. In particular, this YAML string: "--- :abc" produces different results from 1.8.1 and 1.8.2. Under 1.8.2, I get the expected behavior, and YAML::load("--- :abc") => :abc However, under 1.8.1: YAML:load("--- :abc") => ":abc" This totally breaks my...

/ruby/1.8 and /ruby/site_ruby/1.8
What is the difference between /ruby/1.8 and /ruby/site_ruby/1.8 ? (I can see from $: which has priority, but my question is - what is supposed to go where) I think that some problems might be caused when a library gets installed to both, perhaps with the wrong .so being loaded - not sure.... Is this possible? (My questions are towards ruby in general, but specifically towards the Windows One Click Installer) It depends The exact use and layout depends on your OS. For all OSes, ruby/1.8/ holds the core and sandard libs --those that are part of the Ruby distribution proper. And site_ruby/...

Updating Ruby 1.8.6 to 1.8.6-p287 in Debian 4
Hi I have a Debian 4 machine with Ruby 1.8.6 (installed from source) and some gems including Rails 2.1 and Phusion Passenger 2.0.3 (mod_rails, which needs fastthread and rack gems). I want to update to the latest patch of that version (1.8.6-p287), but I have my concerns. Can I do it safely? Is there any warning, any catch? Will I have to reinstall RubyGems and every single gem? What's your advice before patching? Will all the dependent apps be screwed up? I'm asking this because, unfortunately, there's no "make uninstall" command after installing Ruby from source... Rea...

Ruby extension (C++) on OS X [ruby 1.8.2] and Google-Sketchup [ruby 1.8.5]

ruby 1.8.4 gives warnings where ruby 1.8.2 doesn't
Hi, How do I disable warning output in Ruby? The servers at work use ruby 1.8.2, which gives no warning when running some rake / rails scripts. If I rsync / copy those scripts to my ruby 1.8.4 machine and run them there, I get loads of warnings. I don't want to downgrade my beloved Ruby, can anyone tell me how I can simply disable those warnings at run-time? Thanks -- To reply, take of all ZIGs !!

Question about some changes from Ruby 1.8.6 to Ruby 1.9
So, the bulk of my issues thus far have been pretty simple and I've isolated and ported over a very lengthy app from 1.8.6 to 1.9.1. The biggest issues I saw were things like scopes: Before: named_scope :private_pages, :conditions => 'pages.parent_id IS NULL and pages.subpage_id IS NULL', :order => 'pages.position', :include => {:subpages, :subofsubs} After: named_scope :private_pages, :conditions => 'pages.parent_id IS NULL and pages.subpage_id IS NULL', :order => 'pages.position', :include => [:subpages, :subofsubs] ...

Recommended practice for Ruby 1.8.6 and Ruby 1.9.x on Windows
Hi there! Is there any recommended practice for using Ruby 1.8.6 and Ruby 1.9.x on the same Windows PC? I do some work in Rails and a lot of our stuff was written and is working fine in Ruby 1.8..6, so we're hesitant (resistant?) to change it just yet. What I want to do is to slowly start moving to Ruby 1.9.x in parallel so that I can start to see if all is well. Any recommendations? The 1.8.6 was installed using the One Click Installer.
