Hi all,

I've recently installed ruby 1.9.1 from source w/o any special issues on
ubuntu linux 9.04. Everything works great except scrolling command
history in irb with the up/down arrow keys. I'm sure you guys can
appreciate how annoying it is to retype everything (yeah, I'm lazy).

Does anyone have an idea on how to fix this? I read that it has
something to do with readline library, but after installing those (both
GNU and ruby's) and rebuilding didn't change much. I also read a post on
using

$ ./configure --with-readline-dir=/usr/local

for build, but that was on a mac and it doesn't seem to be a valid
configure flag (make didn't recognize it). It was also a fairly old
post.

Any ideas on how to solve this will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
