Installing Ruby 1.9.2 using RVM on Snow Leopard

When I tried to install Ruby 1.9.2
rvm install 1.9.2

I got :

error: Error running 'make ', please check /Users/bparanj/.rvm/log/ruby-1.9.2-rc2/make*.log
error: There has been an error while running make. Aborting the installation.

Steps to Resolve :

1. Install libxml

curl -O
tar zxvf libxml2-2.7.7.tar.gz
cd libxml2-2.7.7
./configure --with-python=/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/
make &
sudo make install

2. Install libxslt

curl -O
tar xvzf libxslt-1.1.26.tar.gz
cd libxslt-1.1.26
sudo make install

rvm install 1.9.2-head -C --enable-shared,--with-readline-dir=/opt/local,--build=x86_64-apple-darwin10


Installing Ruby 1.9.2 with RVM on Snow Leopard


#1 :
rvm 1.9.2-head --default

to make it 1.9.2 when you open new terminal or after reboot.

#2 :
To revert to system installed Ruby:

rvm system --default
