I've spent the last year developing a large Ruby on Rails 2.0
application with over a 100 tables and controllers and hope to be
deploying it soon.
Before I moved from my Windows XP computer to deployment, I wanted to
run it in a local Linux environment to sort out:
1. Amazon S3 files
2. RMagick (went south when I upgraded to Rails 2.0)
3. ARMailer (mail spooling program)
I've installed Ubuntu 7.10 and feel running the scripts to install
Ruby and Rails are reasonable straightforward. I plan to run an Nginx
server with multiple Mongrel clusters using Capistrano.
What's killing me is installing a graphic development environment such
as Radrails (which I love on Windows XP) or Netbeans.
Understand that I've been through the routine of installing "sudo apt-
get install sun-java6-jre" many times. Once, for some unknown reason
my Netbeans 6.0 came up fine (as it found the JRE location on its
own), but I was unsure how it happened and elected to re-install my
Ubuntu and try again.
Anyway, I'm able to install the Netbeans to the point where it asks
for the location of the "JRE". The one time that it worked, this value
was automatically filled in when Netbeans started for the first time.
When I run "java -version" I get the latest 1.6 installation but
can't find out where the "JRE" is located. I've looked MANY places.
Anyway, I'm desperate to move this project along and am happy to hire
someone to consult on this matter.
I am grateful for your reply.
