I am unable to install some plugins for vagrant, e.g. vagrant-virtlib and
vagrant-kvm. Vagrant will try to compile these plugin first and install
result as a Ruby gem. An number of devel packages are required for a
successful compilation. One of those is ruby-devel.

The reason for failing to compile, I think, is because Vagrant is shipped
with an embedded Ruby. This embedded version is 2.4 and openSUSE ships
Ruby 2.5 and hence no proper devel package for Ruby 2.4 is installed. I
have tried to manually install Ruby 2.4 using rvm. Although I could tell
I had Ruby 2.4 running by looking at the output of 'ruby --version', not
all necessary Ruby files had been installed it seemed as the gem
generation was still failing with the same error.

My question is how do I resolve the above issue of having an embedded Ruby
2.4 within vagrant and not having the devel packages for that embedded
It sounds like you are using the RPM provided by upstream. Is that

That is both a yes and a no. I have tried both. My guess would be that vagrant
is not produced with Ruby 2.5 on TW, but rather the binary file from vagrant
is taken. However, I do not know how to test this hypothesis.


I would recommend that you use the RPM provided by openSUSE,
although when I last tried plugin installation still did not work.
