Check out the Ruby on Rails page on my web site at:
I've included my procedure for installing Ruby on Rails in Linux Mint
Debian Edition. That's right, I'm no longer dependent on Ubuntu or
Ubuntu-based Linux distros for developing Ruby on Rails applications.
Linux Mint Debian Edition offers the smoothness and user-friendliness
of its Ubuntu-based counterparts without the heavy Ubuntu overhead.
And given the uncertainties about the future of Ubuntu, I prefer not
depending on this distro.
My page will point you to my deployment of the chapter 2 demo app from
the 4th edition of the book _Agile Web Development with Rails_.
I will be adding additional procedures and links to additional
deployments in the days ahead.
