Hi all I was trying to get ruby installed on my Openwrt

The following is my software/hardware information:
Tp-link wl703n + usb 4G flash device
ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT (12.09-beta, r33312)

I was able to successfully mount the flash drive in /mnt/flash and to install the following pakages on it using opkg :
libruby - 1.9.2-p0-1
ruby - 1.9.2-p0-1
ruby-core - 1.9.2-p0-1
ruby-dl - 1.9.2-p0-1
ruby-enc - 1.9.2-p0-1
ruby-erb - 1.9.2-p0-1
ruby-gems - 1.9.2-p0-1
ruby-openssl - 1.9.2-p0-1
ruby-webrick - 1.9.2-p0-1
ruby-yaml - 1.9.2-p0-1
ruby-zlib - 1.9.2-p0-1

The problem came when I went to /mnt/flash/usr/bin and tried to run ruby:
root@OpenWrt:/mnt/flash/usr/bin# ./ruby -v
./ruby: can't load library '

Has enybody encountered that problem and do you know how to fix it.
I'll provided any needed informaiton.
Thanks in advance!
