ok so i am running virtual machine with virtual rails on my laptop...OS is Linux Mint....I have followed the steps in the tutorial and this is what I've done so far:
sudo apt-get install ruby ruby1.8-dev irb sudo apt-get install sqlite3
next I attempted to install rails by typing in the following: wget http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.php/5...0.8.11.tgz
the following message is what i got:
wget http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.php/5...0.8.11.tgz --2010-08-13 04:59:59-- http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.php/5...0.8.11.tgz Resolving rubyforge.org... 18.104.22.168 Connecting to rubyforge.org|22.214.171.124|:80... connected. HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK Length: 0 [text/html] Saving to: `5...0.8.11.tgz'
next I attempted to unpack the ruby gems by typing the following: tar -zxvf rubygems-0.8.11.tgz
this is where Im stuck..I got the following message and dont know what to do...keep in mind I am a novice at this and dont know anything about ROR... I am learning on my own
tar -zxvf rubygems-0.8.11.tgz tar: rubygems-0.8.11.tgz: Cannot open: No such file or directory tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now tar: Child returned status 2 tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
