I got issue on my openSuSE instances. By default in openSuSE after installation by gem utility (gem install some_app) you will got something like that:

# some_app1.9
# chef-solo1.9


That a bad behaviour especially if you want automate stuff.

I try to find out how to remove this appendix/suffix and find a solution based on this article:

  1. Install ruby19-devel-extra by zypper install ruby19-devel-extra
  2. Second install gems by adding option "--no-format-executable":

    gem install chef --no-format-executable
