Was setting up a new ubuntu 10.10 slice this morning using Sprinkle
and building REE 2011.03 was failing for me. I was seeing this error
in the logs.
Installing developer documentation...
Generating RDoc documentation
./miniruby -I./lib -I.ext/common -I./- -r./ext/purelib.rb ./
runruby.rb --extout=.ext -- "./bin/rdoc" --all --ri --op ".ext/rdoc"
Directory .ext/rdoc already exists, but it looks like it
isn't an RDoc directory. Because RDoc doesn't want to risk
destroying any of your existing files, you'll need to
specify a different output directory name (using the
--op <dir> option).
make: *** [rdoc] Error 1
I was able to get around it by passing the --no-dev-docs to the
installer script. Like so:
sudo ./installer --auto=/usr/local/ruby-enterprise --no-dev-docs
Is this a known issue? Is there a better workaround?
