how to install ruby 2.0 in debian 6?

I want o install ruby 2.0 and I have followed many tutorials, but none of them works, and the defaul repo apt-get install ruby brings me the 1.8 version (and due is debian has restrictions to update it if is not through the repo) any way to do it?

Ive tried this way

cd /usr/src
tar xjf
cd rubyxxx
./configure --enable-shared
make install

and just that, I get error on the next steps, when I make a ruby -version I get this

-bash: /usr/bin/ruby: No such file or directory

the end of the tuto install

cd ext/openssl/
ruby extconf.rb
make install

cd ../readline/
ruby extconf.rb
make install

gem update --system

any idea how to do this in debian 6? thanks


If it's a server, you may want to take a look at RVM ( It would make your install as simple as :

curl -L | bash -s stable --rails --autolibs=enabled
