ruby port macports malloc

Versions (?)

port install ruby -> malloc error

 / Published in: Other


'port install ruby' sometimes results in malloc errors near the final phase (just after destroot completes). It appears that macports may be out of memory while installing documentation.

  1. # remove locks left behind when the errors aborted the install
  2. sudo port -f clean ruby
  4. # start fresh
  5. sudo port -f uninstall ruby
  7. # install without documentation
  8. sudo port install ruby +default_variants +no_doc
