If you’ve installed a gem bundle on OS X Lion the past few weeks then you may have seen the dreaded “[BUG] Segmentation fault” error, where Ruby sees to crash in the
connect C function in
http.rb. Upgrading to the latest Ruby 1.9.3 version (p194) doesn’t seem to help. Luckily someone has found a solution for this problem.
It turns out the segmentation fault is caused by an incompatibility between MacPort’s OpenSSL and RVM. MacPorts installs everything to /opt/local but RVM does not look for OpenSSL in /opt/local. We solved the problem by reinstalling Ruby 1.9.3 with the MacPorts OpenSSL, as follows.
$HOME/.rvmrc and add:
export CFLAGS="-O2 -arch x86_64" export LDFLAGS="-L/opt/local/lib" export CPPFLAGS="-I/opt/local/include"
sudo port install libyaml rvm reinstall ruby-1.9.3 --with-openssl-dir=/opt/local --with-opt-dir=/opt/local
