This has been long overdue. I just updated my ruby 1.9.2 ppa to the final ruby 1.9.2 release. I borrowed the patches from the upstream maverick release and added a couple more patches to get it work on Ubuntu Lucid. The patching system has now changed from
quilt. Please download it and enjoy it and let me know if things work fine. I checked my rails applications and they all are working fine with the new release. Here are the instructions to use the Ruby 1.9.2 PPA.
You can add the repository to your system using the following command.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pratikmsinha/ruby192+bindings
Because of a bug(reported here) in aptitude/python-software-properties, another small change will be required. Executed the following commands.
cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ mv pratikmsinha-ruby192+bindings-lucid.list pratikmsinha-ruby192bindings-lucid.list
Once that’s done, update the apt cache and install the applications
sudo aptitude update sudo aptitude install ruby1.9.2
