    Anyone have ideas on what the issue is? The closest error message I found searching online was linked to this post which I'm not sure is exactly the same since their error message is on a different line (line 9 vs 14) and doesn't mention openssl like my error message does.

    Another option would be to use ruby-install to manually install your desired Ruby version to somewhere on your path. The downside here is that you lose the ability to switch between Rubies. This type of installation would allow you to set $GEM_HOME and $GEM_PATH however you like though.

  • ruby-install 0.8.3 has been released
    2 projects | /r/ruby | 26 Sep 2021
    ruby-install 0.8.3 has been released. This version explicitly pins the homebrew openssl dependency to [email protected]. OpenSSL 3.0 was released this month and is now available in homebrew. Unfortunately, ruby’s openssl bindings are still working on OpenSSL 3.0 support, so attempting to compile any current ruby version against OpenSSL 3.0 from homebrew will result in a compilation error. Until all actively supported versions of Ruby support OpenSSL 3.0, ruby-install will continue to compile against [email protected] on macOS with homebrew.
