I have spent many hours trying to install Ruby On Rails in my Ubuntu 10.10,
but it's not working...
I have tried this tutorial (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmWYZVUln4E) but
it is deprecated, because it is too old - from 2010 - and some URLs don't
Some information about my current installation:
$ ruby -v
ruby 1.8.7 (2010-06-23 patchlevel 299) [i686-linux]
$ gem -v
Please, someone help me, I thought it would be very easy to install Rails,
but it is proving to be very difficult.
This works for me in Ubuntu 12.10, though the dependencies may be
slightly different for 10.10, come back if you have any problems.
First install required packages
sudo apt-get install build-essential bison openssl libreadline6
libreadline6-dev curl git-core \
zlib1g zlib1g-dev libssl-dev libyaml-dev libxml2-dev autoconf
libc6-dev ncurses-dev automake \
now install rvm ruby and rails
curl -L https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --rails
and follow the instructions about changes to .bashrc
If you want mysql
sudo apt-get install libmysqlclient-dev
sudo apt-get install libsqlite3-dev sqlites
And that should do it.
