Ruby Question

Installation of ruby 1.9.3 in Mac OS Mavericks

I have tried the following with macports but give up and uninstalled (http://guide.macports.org/chunked/installing.macports.uninstalling.html) it as I was being unsuccessful with the gcc42 library and gave a try to Homebrew.

Everything went (almost) smooth, i had to manually delete some library files that i have installed with macports, Homebrew was gentle and told me exactly what to do. I already had the xcode installed but i reinstalled it, just in case.

Then I tried to install ruby 1.9.3 using:

\curl -L https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --ruby=1.9.3


and I'm getting this error:

ruby-1.9.3-p448 - #configuring........
Error running './configure --prefix=/Users/pedro/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.3-p448 --with-opt-dir=/usr/local/opt/libyaml:/usr/local/opt/readline:/usr/local/opt/libksba:/usr/local/opt/openssl --without-tcl --without-tk --enable-shared',

There has been an error while running configure. Halting the installation.

Answer

I used @UnholySheep advice and resolved my problem.

First I found that gcc46 were installed:

$ gcc-4.6 -v
Using built-in specs.
COLLECT_GCC=gcc-4.6
COLLECT_LTO_WRAPPER=/usr/local/Cellar/gcc46/4.6.4/libexec/gcc/x86_64-apple-darwin13.0.0/4.6.4/lto-wrapper
Target: x86_64-apple-darwin13.0.0
Configured with: ../configure --build=x86_64-apple-darwin13.0.0 --prefix=/usr/local/Cellar/gcc46/4.6.4 --enable-languages=c --program-suffix=-4.6 --with-gmp=/usr/local/opt/gmp4 --with-mpfr=/usr/local/opt/mpfr2 --with-mpc=/usr/local/opt/libmpc08 --with-ppl=/usr/local/opt/ppl011 --with-cloog=/usr/local/opt/cloog-ppl015 --with-system-zlib --enable-version-specific-runtime-libs --enable-libstdcxx-time=yes --enable-stage1-checking --enable-checking=release --enable-lto --disable-werror --enable-plugin --disable-nls --disable-multilib
Thread model: posix
gcc version 4.6.4 (GCC)

I used locate gcc-4.6 and found that homebrew installed it under /usr/local/bin. Then created a symlink as suggested by @UnholySheep:

sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/gcc-4.6 /bin/gcc-4.6
