I like to use Porteus as my enviroment to develop in ruby and rails.
Does Porteus have ruby in one of the modules ?

hi, in sbopkg you have a directory with ruby software, i think you can do some packages also via usm,you have to know the package name first

The ruby available via USM is the 1.9.x version which is quite updated already. I compiled the 2.1.x version last week in "always fresh" turned it into a module using the tutorial on the website but now it does not work anymore. The lack of modules readily available for Slackware and its derivatives is very counter-productive!

I started a project -I think it was last year- that used Ruby. For that I made this module. But I do not guarantee that it works ok. I took it from Slackbuilds, It should be ok.

Please test it and report... :)
