Unknown encoding in ruby 1.9.1-p429 (4 comment)

Added by Christoph Kappel over 7 years ago

Updating Ruby is usually a task that breaks many things, therefore I avoid it if possible. Being archuser, the maintainer of the Ruby decides when I need to face new problems.

This time they just added filesystem encoding stuff in p429:

Error loading gem paths on load path in gem_prelude
unknown encoding name - filesystem
<internal:gem_prelude>:69:in `find'
<internal:gem_prelude>:69:in `set_home'
<internal:gem_prelude>:38:in `dir'
<internal:gem_prelude>:76:in `set_paths'
<internal:gem_prelude>:47:in `path'
<internal:gem_prelude>:286:in `push_all_highest_version_gems_on_load_path'
<internal:gem_prelude>:355:in `<compiled>'

There exists still now sane way to init the gem path of Ruby so we can start with our hack from Setup gems load path in embedded ruby and add the required encoding stuff. This problem is known in the ruby redmine and the changesets to this issue give at least some hints what need to be done:

Numbers: on /off 1 #include <ruby/encoding.h>
 2 
 3 VALUE encoding = Qnil;
 4 
 5 void Init_prelude(void);
 6 
 7 RUBY_INIT_STACK;
 8 ruby_init();
 9 ruby_init_loadpath();
10 ruby_script("subtle");
11 
12 /* Get encoding from file system */
13 encoding = rb_enc_from_encoding(rb_filesystem_encoding());
14 
15 /* Set internal and external encoding */
16 rb_enc_set_default_internal(encoding);
17 rb_enc_set_default_external(encoding);
18 
19 /* FIXME: Fake ruby_init_gems(Qtrue) */
20 rb_define_module("Gem");
21 Init_prelude();
