starting a quest to make some ruby recipes buildable/installable

Robert P. J. Day

followup to yesterday's cry for help, i've built a
core-image-minimal for x86_64 using "zeus" layers and, at this point,
i'm simply going to start trying to bitbake and IMAGE_INSTALL_append
various ruby gems.

things did not start out well as the very first attempt blew up:

$ bitbake json

but it appears that (zeus-supplied) version 1.8.3 of that recipe has
known issues, so i grabbed the recipe from
meta-cloud-services/meta-openstack (where, for some baffling reason,
many of these ruby gems live), tweaked it thusly:

BPV = "2.3.0"
SRCREV = "92cf5c451a6ec0f3a00e291eb909e57cf38fbea4"
LIC_FILES_CHKSUM = "file://LICENSE;md5=8a960b08d972f43f91ae84a6f00dcbfb"

whereupon it failed on the packaging step thusly:

ERROR: json-2.3.0-r0 do_package_qa: QA Issue:
contained in package json requires, but no
providers found in RDEPENDS_json? [file-rdeps]
ERROR: json-2.3.0-r0 do_package_qa: QA run found fatal errors. Please
consider fixing them.
ERROR: Logfile of failure stored in:
failed with exit code '1'

i don't know enough about ruby recipes to know how to resolve that packaging error, so i'm open to suggestions. in the
meantime, i'm going to work my way through numerous recipes and see
how many i can get to build.
