Fedora Updated package.
Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 5
Name        : ruby
Version     : 1.8.4
Release     : 5.fc5
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  - 1.8.4-5.fc5
- ruby-deprecated-search-path.patch: applied to add more search path
  for backward compatibility.
- added byacc to BuildReq.
- exclude ppc64 to make ruby-mode package. right now emacs.ppc64 isn't provided
  and buildsys became much stricter.
* Wed May 17 2006 Akira TAGOH  - 1.8.4-4.fc5
- correct sitelibdir. (#184198)
- 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. (#184199)
- 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 arch 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. (#179933)
- clean up.
