I’m trying to install Ruby 2.0.0-p195 using rbenv on a Mac (Mountain Lion) and got this error.

Missing the OpenSSL lib?
When I ran brew install openssl it said
Warning: openssl-1.0.1e already installed
Following a solution on this thread https://github.com/sstephenson/ruby-build/issues/305 I tried to install latest stable this way and got the same error
env CFLAGS='-g -O2' RUBY_CONFIGURE_OPTS="--with-readline-dir=`brew --prefix readline`" rbenv install 2.0.0-p195
Try adding OpenSSL to the config options using the –with-openssl-dir option:
$ CONFIGURE_OPTS="--with-openssl-dir=`brew --prefix openssl`" rbenv install 2.0.0-p195
If you’re using Homebrew, you’ll need to install OpenSSL before running the above by running:
$ brew install openssl
UPDATE (see @JarkkoLaine ‘s comment below):
Just for the record, you should not need to use the config opts
anymore with ruby-build and homebrew. However, I had to reinstall
openssl with homebrew to make it work: brew uninstall openssl; brew
upgrade; brew install openssl; rbenv install 2.0.0-p247. See this for
I fixed this by executing:
brew link openssl --force
Mac OSX 10.9.4
Upgrading to the latest version of ruby-build fixed the problem for me:
Like the OP, I got

but installing the latest version of ruby-build, via
# Don't forget brew doctor and brew update if required brew upgrade ruby-build
Ruby-build had some changes between when the OP asked and now, which would explain why it worked for me, but not for the OP using the latest stable version of ruby-build.
For those who have problems installing openssl.
I had this error on my Mac 10.8.4
brew install openssl created directory `/usr/local/Cellar/openssl/1.0.1e/include/openssl' make: *** [install_sw] Error 13 READ THIS: https://github.com/mxcl/homebrew/wiki/troubleshooting These open issues may also help: https://github.com/mxcl/homebrew/pull/19429
Create a directory if it does not exist
sudo mkdir /usr/local/etc/openssl
Change the rights. Replace and with your name and group (e.g. serge:admin)
sudo chown -R <username>:<group> /usr/local/etc/openssl/
Repeat openssl installation
brew install openssl
brew install curl-ca-bundle
CONFIGURE_OPTS="--with-openssl-dir=`brew --prefix openssl`" rbenv install 2.0.0-p195
Solution using ruby-install:
After uninstalling and installing openssl a couple of times (probably unnecessary) I successfully tried this:
ruby-install ruby 2.1.3 -- --with-openssl-dir=`brew --prefix openssl`
The missing library is libssl*-dev* / openssl*-dev*, depending your distribution.
This issue came up again for me with Mac OS 10.9.5
Mac upgraded the command-line tools and that upgraded openssl, which broken rbenv.
I tried all of these solutions, but none of them worked. Everything was up-to-date, but I couldn’t install any new gems or build rubies.
My solution was to:
- Remove the ruby version (for me it was 2.1.1)
- Brew uninstall ruby-build and rbenv
- Brew Re-install rbenv and ruby-build
Hope this helps you if you encounter it too!
