Istalling Ruby 1.9.2

I just installed 1.9.2 on my 2nd machine, but after I installed I checked the version with ruby -v and it sent me 1.8.7

Here’s the terminal output…anyone know what’s wrong (I have RVM installed):

Francescas-MacBook-Air:~ fkrihely$ rvm install 1.9.2

doh! For anyone who is silly like me,

After install put

rvm use 1.9.2

in the command line

and voilla

ruby 1.9.2p290 (2011-07-09 revision 32553) [x86_64-darwin11.2.0]

Sometimes its helpful to close the terminal and open a new one :slight_smile:


I generally like to use rvm use 1.9.2 --default to make sure that I
always use my preferred installation version.
