1. Make sure irb isn't install
rpm -e irb
2. Run ruby is installed
rpm -q ruby
3. Try to run rdoc
/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/rdoc/parsers/parse_rb.rb:18:in `require': No such file to load
-- irb/slex (LoadError)
from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/rdoc/rdoc.rb:15:in `require'
from /usr/bin/rdoc:59:in `require'
ruby should depend on irb.
This is similar to bug #144708 filed for FC3
To solve this issue, I did separate out the files to the rdoc subpackage that is
relevant to rdoc. I'm not sure if our update policy allows to do the same thing.
I mean, to add an rdoc subpackage. but the different way may avoids the
upgrading from RHEL4 in the future, I'm afraid.
The component this request has been filed against is not planned for inclusion
in the next update. The decision is based on weighting the priority and number
of requests for a component as well as the impact on the Red Hat Enterprise
Linux user-base: other components are considered having higher priority and the
number of changes we intend to include in update cycles is limited.
Product Management has reviewed and declined this request. You may appeal this
decision by reopening this request.
