libRuby in the binary root-distribution?

Hello Rooters,

Is there a binary version of root that includes the ruby lib ?
I have root5.28 from binaries and there’s no in $ROOTSYS/lib

Is it because it depends on the local ruby installation ?

Do I have to build root from scratch and link it with ruby in order to be able to work with root+ruby ???
Does this still hold: ???



No, there is no binary built with ruby, and yes, it depends on the local ruby installation.
But it should be straightforward to build from source with ruby support, as specified on
And to see the list of what is supported (configure options), just cd to $ROOTSYS and type “./configure --help”.

Cheers, Bertrand.
