Fedora Updated package.
Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 4
Name        : ruby
Version     : 1.8.4
Release     : 2.fc4
Summary     : An interpreter of object-oriented scripting language
Description :
Ruby is the interpreted scripting language for quick and easy
object-oriented programming.  It has many features to process text
files and to do system management tasks (as in Perl).  It is simple,
straight-forward, and extensible.


* Thu Jun  8 2006 Akira TAGOH  - 1.8.4-2.fc4
- backport from devel.
  - correct sitelibdir.
  - ruby-rubyprefix.patch: moved all arch-independent modules under
    /usr/lib/ruby and keep arch-dependent modules under /usr/lib64/ruby
    for 64bit archs. so 'rubylibdir', 'sitelibdir' and 'sitedir' in
    Config::CONFIG points to the kind of /usr/lib/ruby now.
  - ruby-deprecated-search-path.patch: added the deprecated installation paths
    to the search path for the backward compatibility.
  - added a Provides: ruby(abi) to ruby-libs.
  - ruby-1.8.4-64bit-pack.patch: backport patch from upstream to fix unpack("l")
    not working on 64bit archs and integer overflow on template "w". (#189350)
  - updated License tag to be more comfortable, and with a pointer to get more
    details, like Python package does.
  - ruby-deprecated-sitelib-search-path.patch: applied to add more search path
    for backward compatibility.
  - added byacc to BuildReq.
