gem shebang line length limitation

Create issue
Issue #9 new
Alain Takoudjou created an issue


While using rubygemrecipe recipe on buildout with SlapOS, I faced and issue which say:

'bad interpreter: Permission denied' caused by the case where self.ruby_executable is too long and it hit the shebang line length limitation which result to an incomplete path of ruby executable. I didn't see any good solution to reduce the path of ruby in an automated way in our system, so I tried this patch which fixed the problem.

     def _install_gem(self, gemname, gem_executable, bindir):
         cmd = [
+            self.ruby_executable,

it allow to call the script as 'self.ruby_executable gem_executable' instead of only 'gem_executable' and avoid to hit shebang length limitation.

Can you please review and apply this change ?
