1.3. Dependencies

The Ruby Software Development Kit has the following dependencies, which you must install manually if you are using gem:

  • libxml2 for parsing and rendering XML
  • libcurl for HTTP transfers
  • C compiler
  • Required header and library files

You do not need to install the dependency files if you installed the RPM.

Install the dependency files:

# dnf install gcc libcurl-devel libxml2-devel ruby-devel

If you are using Debian or Ubuntu, use apt-get:

# apt-get install gcc libxml2-dev libcurl-dev ruby-dev
