Switching Ruby platforms on Debian

I’ve also been doing quite a bit of Ruby on Rails coding recently and I have grown to love the way it works and how easy it is to get massive amounts of work done. The problems start when you try to use Ruby on Debian More here

I recently wanted to try out the latest Ruby and found that while you can install both Ruby 1.8 and Ruby 1.9.1 they don’t use the Alternatives system built-in to Debian. This means that the Ruby 1.8 executable is “hard-coded” into the system and even installing Ruby 1.9.1 doesn’t change the default version that runs.
