shoes on solaris

shoes on solaris

Hello,

I would like to install shoes on Solaris x86 (OK OpenIndiana)
but solaris is not a supported platform. Of course, Solaris
seems to have everything needed to make it a supported platform.
The question is how can support for Solaris. BTW, when asking ruby
about its version it reports the following:

$ ruby --version
ruby 1.9.3p392 (2013-02-22) [x86_64-solaris2.11]

Regards,

Apostolos

There is no known way to compile Red Shoes (shoes/shoes on github) with
1.9.3. If you figured that out, you'd be a hero.

Basically, I have asked something different :-) Now, which version of ruby
should I use and then do you or anybody else have any idea how to proceed
on solaris?

Thanks in advance!

I beg to differ, last I checked that's what I used.

Actually.... as JRGifford pointed out, 1.9.3 does work. Just not on
Windows. Sorry!

It's probably very similar to
https://github.com/shoes/shoes/wiki/Building-Shoes-on-Linux , but I don't
know anyone who uses Solaris, so i can't help more than that.

true about the windows part.

I'll try to look into a OpenSolaris VM sometime this week.

OK let me rephrase my question: how can I add support for another platform?
I guess the developers know how to answer this question ;-)

If I were you, I'd try building on Solaris following the linux directions,
and solve the errors one-by-one, while not breaking the linux build :)

It might not be that difficult *crosses fingers*
