#1361 closed defect (fixed)

NEW: fxruby-1.0.27

Reported by: darwin@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.0
Keywords: Cc:



The Portfile and patches can be downloaded at:

Description: FXRuby is a set of language bindings for the FOX GUI toolkit in ruby.


Comments: OpenGL still has issues, I'll be resolving those soon. Everything else is functional however. Ruby likes things in /usr/local, and i've been unable to find a way to properly install ruby libraries in /opt/local and still have mac os x's packaged ruby recognize them properly. So for the time being, that's where this port installs fxruby to. (Note nothing else is in /usr/local/lib, so at least we're not stepping on anything). This port depends on fox and fxscintilla.

I believe that you can set the RUBYLIB environment variable to the paths it isn't seeing. This should allow you to install the libraries in the proper ${prefix}.

What you can do is add a couple ui_msg lines to the end of the Portfile instructing the user to do this (see screen and bash-completion for examples).

ok. fxruby now correctly installs to the right paths, and all!

Resolution: fixed

Cleaned up ui_msgs and changed master_sites to use sourceforge mirror_list. Otherwise, looks good. Tristan, thanks for the hard work and quick response to comments!
