When setting up Ruby on Ubuntu [fixing zlib (LoadError)]

Written October 04, 2010 at 09:00 MDT Tagged tools and linux

Just in the process of repaving a new desktop Ubuntu image. Installed rvm and got the following error when trying to update the gems package:

$ sudo gem update --system 
... in `require': no such file to load -- zlib (LoadError)

Simple fix:

sudo apt-get install zlib1g zlib1g-dev 

After that it's smooth sailing.
