Description Akira TAGOH 2010-05-18 06:22:22 UTC
Description of problem:
I'd like to propose rebasing ruby package in RHEL-6 to the latest Fedora one. upstream is currently maintaining three branches, 1.9.x (stable), 1.8.7.x, and 1.8.6.x for compatibilities and to take care of users who still uses them.
From the experience on security fixes on the deployed RHEL products, maintaining older version isn't a good idea for the updates. this requires extra costs to backport the fixes from upstream. so that would be good to sync to the latest one for the future maintenance.

ruby-1.8.6.399-5.1.el6 has been built.

Comment 11 Jim Meyering 2010-08-13 21:55:44 UTC
Hi Aleš,

Thanks for the info.
I built on both i686 and x86_64, and tests passed on both RHEL6 and F13.
However, that was at least a month ago.
What precise steps have you taken to get the above results?

Comment 12 Aleš Mareček 2010-08-16 08:31:06 UTC
Hi Jim,
these followings are steps I've done:
1. download source package
2. unrpm, unbzip, untar it
3. apply all related patches
4. configure && make {,check}

Comment 14 Jim Meyering 2010-08-18 22:14:46 UTC
Hi Aleš,

Did you run "configure && make && make check", i.e., with no configure options?
If not, please specify *exactly* what commands you used.

The .spec file uses many configure options.  I suspect that test failures resulting from even a slightly differing ./configure ... command are not relevant.

Comment 22 releng-rhel@redhat.com 2010-11-10 21:32:42 UTC
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 is now available and should resolve
the problem described in this bug report. This report is therefore being closed
with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the
solution does not work for you.
