Expected results:

build the rpm successfully.

Additional info:

i tried ruby 2.0.0 p247 too (with a minor patch in the spec), and it has the same results.

i also unsuccessfully tried to skip the failing tests with this somewhat clueless/hopeful change in the spec:

Comment 1 Vít Ondruch 2013-07-01 03:14:25 EDT
You have probably already installed Ruby on your system. If you uninstall them, the test suite should pass.

BTW, it is always better to use Mock [1] for rebuilds etc.

Comment 2 cpg 2013-07-01 05:42:07 EDT
I will try it with mock later.

When compiling it with ruby uninstalled, it still fails. Similar error:

6) Error:
Gem::InstallError: invalid gem: No such file or directory - /tmp/test_rubygems_4136/default/specifications/cache/default-
Comment 3 Vít Ondruch 2013-09-03 08:24:09 EDT
Sorry, the ruby package is not designed nor can be designed to build without mock. The build fails either because you build it as privileged user or because you have already installed version of Ruby.

If some particular test case does not work for you, you can execute it using "make test-all TESTS=test_foo" from Ruby's build directory and add some debug prints into test case to understand the problem.
