Arrow keys do not bring command history in IRB
When using IRB 1.9 (# $Release Version: 0.9.5 # $Revision: 14912 ) pressing the up arrow key does not show the most recent expression or statement executed. You get ^[[A instead. Ruby installed in Ubuntu Feisty Fawn. IRB 1.8 works fine displaying history.

This works for me with ruby 1.9.0 (2008-07-09 revision 15873), you are probably missing either readline or readline headers so ruby cannot build the readline extension.
