Installing RubyGems on Centos 5

This should apply to RHEL5 as well, but I haven’t verified yet.

The easiest solution I’ve found is to simply install Ruby and it’s dependencies and then install RubyGems from source.

I’ve written a small script which installs Ruby and it’s dependencies.  It then grabs the RubyGems source tarball and installs Gems from source.  As I wrote this to get a working Chef install, it also adds an opscode gems source.

You can get the script here.
