I was trying to re-compile ruby 2.1 so many times but had no luck. After messing around, I finally fixed this issue by: 1. Remove and Purge all ruby binaries except for ruby 2.1 from my server: sudo apt-get remove ruby1.8sudo apt-get remove ruby1.9.1 libruby1.9.1sudo aptitude purge ruby ruby1.9.1 libruby…
