Installing Ruby, I Exported Bash Profile Twice

Hell All,

Yep, I'm new to Ruby. I was following the tutorial and seemed to exported the bash profile twice. All I know is that it looks nothing like what the tutorial suggest I should have and I know setting up the correct path is critical to getting everything installed.

Can anyone perhaps help?

Here's what it looks like:

export PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/mysql/bin: $PATH"

export PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/mysql/bin: $PATH"

oS:~ OSXyZ$ echo $PATH /usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/mysql/bin:/usr/local/bin:/ usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/mysql/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/ local/bin:/usr/X11/bin:/usr/local/git/bin oS:~ OSXyZ$

Just run railsready, and your mac will be set up fully.

Hi everyone,

I'm running MacOSX Lion... I use ports to manage packages.. I have ruby, gem and rails installed... I also have XCode installed.

I've been having problem occurring when updating gems:

"Invalid gemspec in [/Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/specifications/json-1.6.1.gemspec]: invalid date format in specification: "2011-09-18 00:00:00.000000000Z""

My understanding is that the problem is that i'm running too old a version of ruby:

jfreeman$ /opt/local/bin/ruby --version ruby 1.8.7 (2011-06-30 patchlevel 352) [i686-darwin11]

jfreeman$ /usr/bin/ruby --version ruby 1.8.7 (2010-01-10 patchlevel 249) [universal-darwin11.0]

Here's info about gem and rails:

jfreeman$ gem --version Invalid gemspec in [/Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/specifications/json-1.6.1.gemspec]: invalid date format in specification: "2011-09-18 00:00:00.000000000Z" 1.8.13

jfreeman$ rails --version Rails 2.3.5

So.. anyway.. i decided to run railsready which, I believe, installed: Ruby 1.9.3-p0.

"... => Extracting Ruby 1.9.3-p0 ==> done...

=> Building Ruby 1.9.3-p0 (this will take a while)... ==> done... ..."

the issue is that I cannot actually find this version of Ruby and/or connect it to gem and rails so I really have the environment I think I should have.

Thanks in advance for any advice/help.

Best wishes,
