Install Ruby 1.9 alongside Ruby 1.8
Authored by: rfzabick on Oct 16, '09 10:40:14AM

I tried the macport approach. Now I have ruby binaries with a 1.9 suffix in my /opt/local/bin. But my old 1.8 binaries are already in that directory without suffixes. Should I rename the 1.8 binaries with a suffix and then remove the suffix from the 1.9 binaries?

How does this install affect my gems? What if I rename the binaries as described above? How will that affect my gems?

I've spent a fair amount of time googling this, but I can't find anywhere that describes how to handle the admin side of ruby and its upgrades.
