For a project I'm using Ruby 2.3.1,

I'm using a CentOS7 OS with ruby 2.3.1 installed. When I run yum install kde-workspace it installs/downgrades to ruby which makes the application unusable.

Is it possible to skip dependencies when installing KDE?


Install kde with the required dependencies , then use rvm Ruby Version Manager to install the 2.3.1 version:

rvm install ruby-2.3.1

set it as default:

rvm --default use 2.3.1
  • I'm behind a horrible proxy that does not allow rvm. – Peter Boomsma Apr 24 '17 at 13:35
  • Try this tuto rvm.io/workflow/proxy – GAD3R Apr 24 '17 at 13:38
  • I've installed RVM offline, the proxy is being managed by some evil overlord that won't budge on his whitelist. So not much help there. On my system I have ruby-2.3.1 installed in /opt/rubies/ruby-2.3.1/bin/ruby is it possible by using RVM to point to that folder instead of /usr/bin/ruby? – Peter Boomsma Apr 24 '17 at 14:33
