installing rvm

Hey folks,

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, but I need help installing RVM on
my Mac (10.7.2). Every set of instructions I've found online for
getting started with Ruby on Rails begins with running the following
command in my terminal:

bash < <(curl -s
https://raw.github.com/wayneeseguin/rvm/master/binscripts/rvm-installer
)

(from http://beginrescueend.com/rvm/install/)

Every time I try to run this command, I'm greeted with the same
seemingly git-related error:

M patches/ruby/fix-irb-completion.diff
Successfully checked out branch ''
Cannot pull with rebase: You have unstaged changes.
Please commit or stash them.

ERROR: Failed pull/rebase origin

I have VERY limited knowledge of how git works, but I do know that I
don't use it at all on my machine, and I shouldn't have any "unstaged
changes".

If anyone can help me overcome this problem and install RVM, I'd be very
grateful, as I'd like to start experimenting with and learning about
Ruby on Rails.

You could try pulling it from git itself:

When you say that you don't use git at all, is it installed on your machine
(I'm on Snow Leopard & installed it myself so I don't know about Lion)?

Cheers,

This one?

You're probably better off asking on the rvm forum or Wayne himself at IRC
details of which can be found at the rvm homepage.

Cheers,
