Yep, I'm new to Ruby. I was following the Lynda.com 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
Can anyone perhaps help?
Here's what it looks like:
oS:~ OSXyZ$ echo $PATH
Just run railsready, and your mac will be set up fully.
I'm running MacOSX Lion... I use ports to manage packages.. I have
ruby, gem and rails installed... I also have XCode installed.
I've been having problem occurring when updating gems:
"Invalid gemspec in
date format in specification: "2011-09-18 00:00:00.000000000Z""
My understanding is that the problem is that i'm running too old a
version of ruby:
jfreeman$ /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
date format in specification: "2011-09-18 00:00:00.000000000Z"
jfreeman$ rails --version
So.. anyway.. i decided to run railsready which, I believe, installed:
=> Extracting Ruby 1.9.3-p0
=> Building Ruby 1.9.3-p0 (this will take a while)...
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
Thanks in advance for any advice/help.
