Hi all ive installed rvm 1.8.7 and 1.9.2 when i select rvm 1.8.7 and when i try to create a gem set and install gems it is not installing it is asking from permissions. if i use sudo to install gems and then when i type gem list i can’t any gem . where did i go wrong . correct me
Thanks in advance
Did you follow the rvm site tutorial? Ig not please try by there!
ive gone through rvm site only
i followed this link http://screencasts.org/episodes/how-to-use-rvm everything went fine other than installing the gems only. i get this
ERROR: While executing gem … (Errno::EACCES)
Permission denied - /home/hanish/.gem/specs
when go with sudo it works but the gem is installing in root.
Thanks in advance
I recommend you remove all your ruby version on your system, remove rvm and begins from scratch. It is probabily some permission problem, because you have a ruby version installed by default in your OS. I guess you are using linux, but if not I recommend do the same approach. Remove everything and try to install through rvm web site.
if you need any support please ping me.
So? What *are* the perms on that directory? You've probably messed
them up fiddling with sudo (which you should avoid when using rvm )
but you can change them back to a sane state.
Thank you ive tried in other system it worked but not on my system.ill remove all the version of ruby and ill try with rvm
the one thing that i noticed from screen cast that they did not talk about is the scope of your rvm and gem installs. you should have rails installed on your machine globally before you install it in a gemset or a .rvmrc environment.

It is not necessary (or desirable) to install rails before rvm. Why
do you think it is necessary?
