Install Ruby and Bundler

Ruby 2.5 or newer is required.

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 to install Ruby 2.5 or later.

Debian and Ubuntu

Debian 9 (stretch) and Ubuntu 16.04 (xenial) ship Ruby 2.3, which is not supported by Arvados. Use RVM to install Ruby 2.5 or later.

Debian 10 (buster) and Ubuntu 18.04 (bionic) and later ship with Ruby 2.5, which is supported by 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
