rvm on ubuntu 11.10

Written by

2012-03-02 - updated to use ruby 1.9.3 and official instead of system rvm.

When trying to install ruby 1.9.2 using rvm I got a nasty suprise:

ossl_ssl.c:110:1: error: ‘SSLv2_method’ undeclared here (not in a function)
ossl_ssl.c:111:1: error: ‘SSLv2_server_method’ undeclared here (not in a function)
ossl_ssl.c:112:1: error: ‘SSLv2_client_method’ undeclared here (not in a function)
make[1]: *** [ossl_ssl.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/var/cache/ruby-rvm/src/ruby-1.9.2-p180/ext/openssl'
make: *** [mkmain.sh] Error 1

The solution

# install rvm
bash -s stable < <(curl -s https://raw.github.com/wayneeseguin/rvm/master/binscripts/rvm-installer )
# make sure we have $rvm_path
source /etc/profile
# don't use ubuntus openssl
rvm pkg install openssl
rvm install 1.9.3-p125 --with-openssl-dir=$rvm_path/usr
