I am a happy user of rvm.
Recently a competitor for rvm appeared called rbenv, which seems to be
cleaner, using less shell tricks and separating the handling of
environments and building and installing rubies. This makes also easier
to use it system-wide (rpm package)
I just want to evaluate it, but I have submitted initial packages for
rbenv and ruby-build to devel:languages:ruby:extensions.
the usage is very similar, and ruby-build ads a rbenv install command
I do have in my bashrc a export RBENV_ROOT=/space/rbenv so that NFS is
Then do rbenv init and it will tell you what else to do.
I would be interested in experiences and thoughts. My experience so far:
- ruby 1.9.2 does not build
- switching to a version still makes system gems visible. This makes
bundler see some gems as installed but when I run tests the gem is not
