Install Ruby, Rails on Lepard

Wow what hell(can that be said here?)

I am no novice in working on osx command line nor windows and this has been a very frustrating experience.

I have spent 5 days(on and off) trying to consistently use rails. It just horrible.

So does anyone have a good set of instructions to install RoR in Leopard?

Thanks,

Giovanni

This is a good one:

I opted to use PostgresPlus instead of compiling:

Good luck!

If you are running Leopard, you should already have working
installations of Ruby and Rails. Are you looking for specific
versions?

Not really, just want it to work.

Trying to learn rails/ruby, I have tried the different examples and
most stuff dont work because the versions are totally different. So I
am trying to install the most commonly used version.

The Leopard installation got ruined so have to re-install. But there
is no simple install manuals.

So I need help.

Using the rails that comes with OS X 10.5, I simply did:

sudo gem update --system
sudo gem install rails
sudo gem update rake
sudo gem update sqlite3-ruby

and was swiftly upgraded to the latest version. If that's the most
commonly used I don't know.

thanks guys,

I ultimately decided to NOT do the RoR way and stay with php.

Ruby was never the issue, but Rails.

Thanks again,

Here’s an even easier Rails guide at Apple:

Go ahead and give another chance to Rails.

You could use Locomotive to try Rails.

It doesn't include the latest version of rails put it is very easy to
install (to comand line)

Rails is amazingly simple to install especially if you are not a n00b,
Craig is right, if you give up that easy you should just use PHP.
