    I installed ruby on windows2k pro using the 1 click installer download. Simplest download ever.). However i cant find anything like it for linux. Is there a simple 1 click installer for ruby on linux? if not were and how would i download it if i install it the hard way? I have suse linux 9.0 pro installed on my machine if it helps.

    silly question first. Have you already got ruby? ie. did it sneak in with your distro's install?

    If not, goto http://rpmfind.net
    do a search on ruby and download the relevant (to your Suse 9.0 distro - such as ruby-1.8.0-31.i586.rpm) then double click on this file on your PC, in your favorite file manager, and let RPM install it for you.

    have fun

    i have a computer with a partitioned hard drive. One with winpro2000 and other part with suse pro 9.0. Suse linux doesnt have ruby installed in it i checked. U can tell if u have ruby installed or not by typing ruby -v into command term.

    great stuff, so all you need to do is go to http://rpmfind.net and download the ruby rpm and then get rpm (Redhat Package Manager) to instal it for you.

    Or you may find that it has been included on a CD on the front of a magazine, which would save you doing the download.

    http://rpmfind.net is a great place to get packages from. Also, when a new version of something you already have comes out, you can usually get the update from there.
