Hello,

I wanted to install ruby 1.9 today...
This doc reflects info found here: Gentoo Ruby Project (if carefully read).
Your post was helpful in validating what needs to be done.
thank you very much.
I have a question.
Is step 2,

equivalent to making an entry like the following in /etc/portage/package.keywords?
Code:
dev-lang/ruby ~amd64

Cheers,
:D
