Installing Ronin on OpenSUSE

Copy/Paste Instructions

sudo zypper -n in -l gcc make awk ruby-devel git zip
sudo gem install ronin

Detailed Breakdown

Build Dependencies

First we will need to install a C compiler (gcc or clang) and make. These are required to install certain ruby gems, which contain C extensions (aka C bindings) to other C libraries, such as the nokogiri, sqlite3, and nio4r gems.

sudo zypper -n in -l gcc make awk
Note:

awk is not installed by default in the official OpenSUSE docker image.

Ruby

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

sudo zypper -n in -l ruby-devel

Runtime Dependencies

Next we will need to install additional utilities, such as git and zip, that parts of Ronin use:

sudo zypper -n in -l git zip

Ronin

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

sudo gem install ronin

Postinstall

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

ronin help

Troubleshooting

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.
