Install Ruby and Bundler

Minimum of Ruby 2.3 is required. Ruby 2.5 is recommended.

Option 1: Install from packages


Future versions of Arvados may require a newer version of Ruby than is packaged with your OS. Using OS packages simplifies initial install, but may complicate upgrades that rely on a newer Ruby. If this is a concern, we recommend using RVM.

Centos 7

The Ruby version shipped with Centos 7 is too old. Use RVM.

Debian and Ubuntu

Debian 9 (stretch) and Ubuntu 16.04 (xenial) ship Ruby 2.3, which is sufficient to run Arvados. Later releases have newer versions of Ruby that can also run Arvados.

# apt-get --no-install-recommends install ruby ruby-dev bundler

Option 2: Install with RVM

Install gpg and curl

Centos 7

yum install gpg curl which

Debian and Ubuntu

apt-get --no-install-recommends install gpg curl

Install RVM

# gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 409B6B1796C275462A1703113804BB82D39DC0E3 7D2BAF1CF37B13E2069D6956105BD0E739499BDB
\curl -sSL | bash -s stable --ruby=2.5

To use Ruby installed from RVM, load it in an open shell like this:

. /usr/local/rvm/scripts/rvm

Alternately you can use rvm-exec (the first parameter is the ruby version to use, or “default”), for example:

rvm-exec default rails console

Finally, install Bundler:

~$ gem install bundler

Option 3: Install from source

Install prerequisites for Debian 8:

sudo apt-get install \
    bison build-essential gettext libcurl3 libcurl3-gnutls \
    libcurl4-openssl-dev libpcre3-dev libreadline-dev \
    libssl-dev libxslt1.1 zlib1g-dev

Install prerequisites for CentOS 7:

sudo yum install \
    libyaml-devel glibc-headers autoconf gcc-c++ glibc-devel \
    patch readline-devel zlib-devel libffi-devel openssl-devel \
    make automake libtool bison sqlite-devel tar

Install prerequisites for Ubuntu 12.04 or 14.04:

sudo apt-get install \
    gawk g++ gcc make libc6-dev libreadline6-dev zlib1g-dev libssl-dev \
    libyaml-dev libsqlite3-dev sqlite3 autoconf libgdbm-dev \
    libncurses5-dev automake libtool bison pkg-config libffi-dev curl

Build and install Ruby:

mkdir -p ~/src
cd ~/src
curl -f | tar xz
cd ruby-2.5.5
./configure --disable-install-rdoc
sudo make install

sudo -i gem install bundler
