Getting bleeding edge rails

Dear all,

I would like to work on the latest rails version from github. I have pulled it and set my $GEM_PATH to where I pulled it : /home/joshua/rails/

But when I worked on it, gem barfed out and did not recognize it. But when I typed: gem environment, it displayed /home/joshua/rails/ as my $GEM_PATH

Can anyone that has worked with bleeding edge version tell me what is the proper way to do this?

Thank you very much for your assistance.

Regards.

put what you have cloned from github into vendor/rails (or symlink
vendor/rails to your checkout from github)

Thanks Frederick. But how come I don't get the 3-0-0-unstable branch ?

Thanks Frederick. But how come I don't get the 3-0-0-unstable branch ?

because it just checks out master by default. Just checkout whatever
branch you need.

Hi Frederick,

I've just realised I can't use symlink on windows. What is the
environment variables for ruby library path? I tried RUBYPATH and it
doesn't work. Thank you very much for helping.

rails
