Iirc, it was something fishy like Rich Lane from the sup project needing some fixes in the ruby ncurses, so he made this package. I'm not entirely sure, it's a bit hazy. Anyway, you should be just able to change your PKGBUILD to use ruby-ncurses-full and it should work.

I believe that is because if you already have xapian-core on your system, then xapian-ruby-bindings is much smaller and it used to work just fine with sup. There may be a way to make it work with the current version of sup, but I don't know how. If anyone knows more about xapian-ruby-bindings please let me know.

A bit clearer but, why do this package list xapian-ruby-bindings as a dependency if it needs ruby-xapian-full?

I needed to update to get ruby-xapian-full to work.

<internal:lib/rubygems/custom_require>:29:in `require': cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory - /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/xapian-full-1.2.3/lib/ (LoadError)

The xapian-ruby-bindings is not the official package that sup uses, ruby-xapain-full is, which is a gem. AFAIK, no gem exists for xapian-ruby-bindings and so I can't package it as a gem. I don't really know much about the xapian-ruby-bindings package. The sources just exist in a file directory on the web and I grab them from there as the previous maintainer did. xapian-ruby-bindings depends on xapian-core while ruby-xapian-full does not. If you use ruby-xapian-full(the updated version I just posted), and the just updated version ruby-ncursesw, you can update to the most recent version of ruby and everything should work. I hope I have clarified things a little.

I'm afraid that xapian-ruby-bindings don't seem to be a gem install either.

...Could not find RubyGem xapian-full (>=

actually, it's up now. Tell me if it doesn't work, I might have done something to my system and then forgot

It's very possible to get it working, I was poking the maintainer of ruby-gettext (in community, so it's a little more official) to switch his package to being a gem install. It looks like he's finally done this (though didn't e-mail me about it), so the sup package should be do-able now.

I'm kind of sick/tired at the moment, but I'll hopefully find the energy to throw up the new version soon
