Hmmm. Let’s see what MEPIS is missing. It built perfectly on an unpatched version of FC6 the last time. Its probably got something to do with rdoc:
# apt-get install rdoc # ruby setup.rb # apt-get install libyaml-ruby # apt-get install libzlib-ruby # gem install rails
There’s probably more; e.g. activerecord and all but that’s enough for today. I shall get Subversion up and running soon too, so this can become my development platform.
