I tried installing ruby2.2.0preview1 on fedora21 using a repo I found
on this list  but ran into some errors. I was able to install ruby
2.2.0preview1 on centos7 using this repo 
Error: Package: rubygem-io-console-0.4.2-23.fc21.x86_64 (fedora)
Available: ruby-libs-2.1.2-23.fc21.x86_64 (fedora)
Installing: ruby-libs-2.2.0-0.25.preview1.fc21.x86_64 (ruby22)
Here's the full error .
This is the issue you are facing:
$ rpmdev-vercmp rubygem-io-console-0.4.2-23.fc21.x86_64.rpm
IOW, the current F21 package has higher NVR than the preview, hence YUM
prefers the F21 package. This will not be issue for the official build,
since the '0.' from the release will be dropped for stable version.
You have several options how to install Ruby:
* yum install --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=ruby22 ruby
* yum install ruby rubygem-io-console-0.4.2-0.25.preview1.fc21
Note that I have not tested these, so I might be wrong, but I hope you
got the principle ;)
What I'm really trying to do is build the spec file . I've read the
wiki page  but need some help. I thought I'll start by getting the
SRPM and try rebuilding the spec first. I was able to get the SRPM for
centos from  but that didn't work because of the load function (I
think). There is no SRPM from  and I can't even install it to begin
with as mentioned above.
Hopefully František can fix this.
I am using rpmbuild. I've also read about mock, which I can use
locally, and koji, which I can't (I think). Before I spend more time,
I would appreciate any pointers on how to build the spec file. Should
I be using rpmbuild, mock, or koji?
This was hopefully answered by Josef.
My goal is to help test newer ruby versions by packaging it or just by
using it. I'm in the process of setting up a staging server of my
Rails app using ruby 2.2.0preview1.
Very cool! I am very glad for any feedback!
I'm new to this list so let me know if I should be asking this somewhere else.
This is the right place. And bugzilla is second best place if you are
99,9% sure you hit some bug.
