Amarok ebuild cannot find ruby

Sep 22nd, 2008 | Filed under problems

Recently I tried to install amarok on a fresh system and after build i couldn’t find amarok executable file!
>>> media-sound/amarok-1.4.10 merged.
>>> Recording media-sound/amarok in “world” favorites file…
After small sniffing I found in the middle of a build log following errors:

checking for ruby… /usr/bin/ruby
/usr/bin/ruby: no such file to load — auto_gem (LoadError)
/usr/bin/ruby: no such file to load — auto_gem (LoadError)
checking ruby.h usability… no
checking ruby.h presence… no
checking for ruby.h… no

checking if amarok should be compiled… no

= The Ruby programming language is not installed. Please obtain Ruby
= (version 1.8 or later) from, or install a distribution
= package. To build Amarok requires the Ruby header files as well, which some
= distributions package separately.

= Some mandatory dependencies are either not installed or not installed
= correctly. See the Amarok README for help with this issue. Further assistance
= can be found at or in amarok on
= You will still be able to build other modules from extragear/multimedia.

Obviously I had ruby installed as it is amarok dependency.
I had no time to look into this, but quick sollution is to
emerge rubygems
