Installing Ronin on Arch

Copy/Paste Instructions

sudo pacman -Sy --noconfirm gcc make ruby readline sqlite
sudo gem install ronin

Detailed Breakdown

Build Dependencies

First we will need to install gcc and make. These are required to install gems which contain C extensions (aka C bindings) to other C libraries, such as the sqlite3 gem which compiles against libsqlite3.

sudo pacman -Sy --noconfirm gcc make


Next, we will need to install Ruby >= 3.0.0, which should already be available in your system’s package manager.

sudo pacman -Sy --noconfirm ruby

C libraries

Then, we will need to install various C libraries which are used by some of the Ruby gems, such as libsqlite3 which is required by the sqlite3 gem.

sudo pacman -Sy --noconfirm readline sqlite


Now that everything else is installed, it is time to install Ronin!

sudo gem install ronin


Assuming no errors occur, you should now be able to run ronin:

ronin help


Ruby and many ruby gems will not work if the LANG environment variable is not set or set to C. Make sure that LANG is set to a UTF8 language, such as en_US.UTF-8.
