Feature #1498

rubygems tests fail on zlib dependency if you compile ruby without zlib headers

Added by rogerdpack (Roger Pack) over 11 years ago. Updated over 9 years ago.

Target version:


Currently if you don't have zlib headers installed and you run the tests, it yields:

C:/dev/ruby/downloads/ruby_trunk/test/rubygems/test_gem_spec_fetcher.rb: no such file to load -- zlib
repeat many times

I'd suggest that core fallback on a pure ruby zlib if a C one isn't installed.

zliby ,

of course, there's no pure ruby openssl so I'm not sure if this would actually be enough to allow rubygems tests to run, but it would still in general be nice.

Can I reject this?
This problem has "Who is the maintainer of new feature" problem.

Anyway, if ruby bundle zlib implementation it should be C implementation.

  • Status changed from Open to Rejected

You can use pure ruby zlib these days, so ok to reject [I'll go ahead and do so].
