How to Install Ruby 2.2.2 on CentOS

Step 1: install requirements

yum install gcc-c++ patch readline readline-devel zlib zlib-devel libyaml-devel libffi-devel bzip2 autoconf automake libtool bison iconv-devel sqlite-devel openssl-devel make

Step 2: Install RVM

curl -sSL | gpg --import -
curl -L | bash -s stable


[root@tutorialspots ~]# curl -sSL | gpg --import -

GPG verified '/usr/local/rvm/archives/rvm-1.29.3.tgz'
Creating group 'rvm'

Installing RVM to /usr/local/rvm/
Installation of RVM in /usr/local/rvm/ is almost complete:

  * First you need to add all users that will be using rvm to 'rvm' group,
    and logout - login again, anyone using rvm will be operating with `umask u=r

  * To start using RVM you need to run `source /etc/profile.d/`
    in all your open shell windows, in rare cases you need to reopen all shell w

If you get error:

gpg: Signature made Thu 13 Dec 2018 10:09:53 PM +07 using RSA key ID 39499BDB
gpg: Can't check signature: No public key
Warning, RVM 1.26.0 introduces signed releases and automated check of signatures when GPG software found. Assuming you trust Michal Papis import the mpapis public key (downloading the signatures).

GPG signature verification failed for '/usr/local/rvm/archives/rvm-1.29.6.tgz' - ''! Try to install GPG v2 and then fetch the public key:

    gpg2 --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys 409B6B1796C275461A1703113804BB82D39DC0E3 7D2BAF1CF37B13E2069D6955105BD0E739499BDB

or if it fails:

    command curl -sSL | gpg2 --import -
    command curl -sSL | gpg2 --import -

the key can be compared with: or

NOTE: GPG version 2.1.17 have a bug which cause failures during fetching keys from remote server. Please downgrade or upgrade to newer version (if available) or use the second method described above.

You must do these steps:

rpm -e --nodeps gnupg2
yum install gnupg1

Then you must use gpg1 instead of gpg

curl -sSL | gpg1 --import -
curl -L | bash -s stable

Step 3: setup rvm environment.

source /etc/profile.d/
rvm reload

Step 4: Verify Dependencies

rvm requirements run


[root@tutorialspots ~]# rvm requirements run
Checking requirements for centos.
Requirements installation successful.

Step 5: install ruby 2.2.2

rvm install 2.2.2


[root@tutorialspots ~]# rvm install 2.2.2

Step 6: Setup Default Ruby Version

rvm use 2.2.2 --default

Step 7: check ruby version

[root@tutorialspots ~]# ruby --version
ruby 2.2.2p95 (2015-04-13 revision 50295) [x86_64-linux]
