If you're using rbenv already, why aren't you using bundler or the like? You shouldn't really be installing system packages in the hopes of using them with a non-system Ruby.

@cdown what do you think about adding `provides=('ruby')` to the pckgbuild?

@voyd, That is not true. RbEnv is written in a combination of bash and c: RBenv is not dependent on ruby being installed at all.

I agree with @huma and @zrl. The rbenv package should definitely provide ruby because bringing in any package with ruby as a dependency will install another ruby version outside of rbenv, and that screws with paths in all kinds of ways.

Changed URI without pkgver bump (since it's a noop).

rbenv is a pretty active project, but it stopped tagging releases. Version 0.4.0 was released in January 2013. I'd advise everybody to switch to rbenv-git, which pulls the latest version. (Disclaimer: I wrote the rbenv-git package because of this)

@huma, zrl: as rbenv is a ruby application itself, it won't work without another ruby...

zrl commented on 2014-03-24 06:17

Just a note to those fish users out there: this version doesn't have fish support.

zrl commented on 2014-03-23 18:06

huma: I definitely think it should.

Do you think rbenv should provides=('ruby')? Say if package A depends on ruby and you have rbenv installed, but no ruby from the main repository - it will complain about the missing dependency.
