Has anyone used gems to install an app in Ruby?
I’m trying to add a facility that uses FFI (an interface to Csound, actually), and I’m not getting very far yet. If anyone else has trodden a similar path it could save me a lot of pain!
The first barrier was that gems wanted to put the downloads in the system read-only ruby directory. Seems that it is not adapted for Haiku packages. Fixed with the ‘-i’ option.
Then of course I had to install ruby-devel, but even after that it gets loads of errors the moment it tries to compile the FFI stuff. I suspect more options may fix this too, but ther’s a lot to wade through.
If anyone has a map, it would help!
