Fresh Rails install won't use version 3.1

Hi,

I'm trying to install rails for the 1st time.

I can't seem to get it to install beyond Rails 2.2.3.

I have followed the instructions at: http://rubyonrails.org/download

I downloaded the latest RubyGems and ran 'ruby setup.rb'.

$ gem -v
1.8.11
I ran 'gem install rails' and got Rails 2.2.3.

I ran 'gem update' serveral times and I get:

$ gem update
Updating installed gems
Updating rails
Successfully installed rails-2.2.3
Gems updated: rails
Installing ri documentation for rails-2.2.3...
Installing RDoc documentation for rails-2.2.3...
I tried gem1.8:

$ gem1.8 update
Updating installed gems
Updating rails
Successfully installed rails-2.2.3
Gems updated: rails
Installing ri documentation for rails-2.2.3...
Installing RDoc documentation for rails-2.2.3...

$ rails -v
Rails 2.2.3

$ ruby -v
ruby 1.8.7 (2010-08-16 patchlevel 302) [i486-linux]
I'm using Debian 'unstable' (Wheezy/Sid).

I'm new to rails and don't understand what I'm doing wrong.
I've searched by so far nothing specific to this issue.

I thought the latsted gem would just get Rails 3.1 just as the install
docs at the site say?

Any advise much apprecited.

Thanks!

Please run `gem sources -l` and make sure <http://rubygems.org/> is in
the list. Probably your list of sources is outdated?

Also I would encourage you to use rvm[1] in the future it will make
your life much easier.

Just run railsready (https://github.com/joshfng/railsready) on a fresh linux installation, and you’re done.
