Fail to install chef-server on Ubuntu 12.04, new Ruby


I’m seeing an error installing chef server on Ubuntu 12.04, with the system
ruby updated to 1.9.3.

Following the steps on the wiki:
an error occurs starting chef:

Setting up chef-server-api (10.18.2-1) …

Creating config file /etc/chef/server.rb with new version

  • Starting chef-server
    /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.9.1/rubygems/custom_require.rb:36:in require': cannot load such file -- merb-core (LoadError) from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.9.1/rubygems/custom_require.rb:36:inrequire’
    from /usr/sbin/chef-server:24:in `’

Does chef server still run with 1.9 ruby?
