Yes. I suppose it was like shouting from a hilltop.
My daughter committed her entire book collection, some hundreds of
books, to Alexandria software, the free version, years ago. It stopped
working a couple of years back, HW and SW too old, and couldn't update.
Now she has a Dell Latitude I5, and I found a free .deb package for
Alexandria. Accordingly I put LMDE-3-201808 on it, loaded the Ruby
packages from the repo (2xx), and tried the .deb. Complaint: requires
Ruby 1.7. All of the older Ruby packages require compiling. so I wonder=
Is there an easier way? I obtained Ruby 1.78, is it likely to work if
correctly installed? How critical are the changes in version? I haven't
installed using "make" for a very long time, I'll have to relearn the
process! See how spoiled we get..
Thanks, I appreciate your reply.
