I'm not sure if I got it well, but I'll try my best. So have you
installed RVM already? It's wise to install Ruby 1.9, then set it as
default, then install the gem - but not as super user! So without
sudo! This way it won't be in your system files, it will be "Ruby-
Yes. But I had to use sudo as I got an error of some sort and a
reference to my previous gem, the .gemrc. Not sure what that was.
Also it's a good idea, hogy uninstall, reinstall rubygems, since
sometimes it's wokring well around updates.
Perhaps it's a good idea to uninstall and start over.
May I ask you to write here the output of theese commands:
ruby 1.9.2p0 (2010-08-18 revision 29036) [i386-darwin10.5.0]
rvm 1.1.1 by Wayne E. Seguin (firstname.lastname@example.org)
and your OS? and which Rails are you using/would you like to use?
I'm working on Mac OS 10.6.5 locally, using nginx and passenger. Then I
have a VPS with Debian 5 where I will host my apps.
I think alost every info is here:
I've seen that. Thanks.
but feel free to ask here, or almost every other mailing list... don't
care if others are not really helpful!
cheers, good luck,
Thank you very much. Feels really good to read a post like yours. I
appreciate your effort to help.
I've used Rails for a few years now, but I'm not the natural programmer
and I can get stuck on technical stuff, even though I feel at home in
the Terminal and such. This thing with rvm was new to me, and yes, a bit
What I don't understand is how my old Rails 2 apps will deal with rvm.
Will they use my old gems and run as before even though I've set rvm
with 1.9.2 as --default? Well, it looks like they do but I'm not sure
which gem is used and where.
