Earlier we already explained how to get Ruby 1.9.3 running on an Amazon AMI. This is just a quick update to get version 2.0.0 up. We used the current 64 bits Amazon AMI (2013.03.1).
Note that the complete procedure might take a few hours on a Amazon Micro instance. Deleting the old version of Ruby also removes the package aws-amitools-ec2. As long as you don’t need to create your own AMIs with this instance, you will be fine.
Here is the procedure, as usual log in as ec2-user and perform the following from the shell:
sudo su - cd yum remove ruby yum groupinstall 'Development Tools' yum groupinstall development-libs yum install libffi-devel yum install libyaml-devel yum update wget ftp://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/2.0/ruby-2.0.0-p195.tar.gz tar xzvf ruby-2.0.0-p195.tar.gz cd ruby-2.0.0-p195 ./configure make make install make clean gem update –system exit ruby --version (this should give you the newly installed version)
I did not get any errors related to Doxygen this time (the dreaded
make: *** [doc/capi/.timestamp] Killed). If you do, please refer to our earlier post on how to fix this by installing the latest version of Doxygen from source.
That’s it! Have fun with Ruby!
