Topic: installing Ruby and Rails on OSX TIger
I probably did this way wrong. I just figured this would be pretty simple (installing Rails in Ubuntu was a piece of cake)
I started by using the Ruby that came preinstalled. I guess that's wrong. Rails says its broken but doesnt really say why or how.
With the preinstalled rails I installed rubygems, then with gem I installed rails capistrano and rmagick (getting imagemagick installed was a lot of fun )
Got my site up and running but little things would break, like script/console (complained it couldn't find readline)
So I poked around on Google and found how the preinstalled Ruby is broken (again with no real reason why, I guess readline?) and so I went and installed Ruby from DarwinPorts.
But then Ruby didn't think gem was installed anymore, so I reinstalled it. Then I had to reinstall rails via gem again.
Now I am reinstalling rmagick because again script/console complains it is missing. I am installing it via gem. I'm hoping this will be the final step I need to take.
Am I ok here? Have I got remnants of different versions of rails, rmagick, ruby, etc etc scattered throughout my machine? Does the ports version of ruby conflict with the preinstalled one? Do I have two gem repositories on my machine somewhere now?
