Bug #10275

Issues when trying to complile ruby 2.1.3

Added by thalesian (Alex Kiagiri) almost 5 years ago. Updated over 4 years ago.

Target version:
ruby -v:
ruby 2.1.2p95 (2014-05-08 revision 45877) [x86_64-darwin11.0]


I encountered an issues where I was using RVM to install ruby 2.1.3 and it kept hanging at the compilation stage.
I thought this was due to a compiler issues and set the CC flag to gcc and retried the install: it still failed and the compilation crashed. See commands trail and attached make log.

Hi, an you reproduce the problem without RVM?
(e.g. "./configure && make && make install")

If not, please see for help/support options.
