Re: Ruby on ubuntu

The easiest way to get Ruby and Ruby on Rails running under Linux is to use this tool

wget --no-check-certificate https://github.com/joshfng/railsready/raw/master/railsready.sh && bash railsready.sh

You get to choose to use RVM or build from source as your ruby install.

If you choose RVM make sure you know how to use it! http://beginrescueend.com/rvm/basics/

Also to get MySQL running on it before you install Ruby do these commands

sudo apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client libmysql-ruby libmysql-dev

That will install MySQL for you and the dev package for use with Ruby

or if you want to use PostreSQL do these commands

sudo apt-get install libpq5 libpq-dev

then after you install ruby do

sudo gem install pg

and that will set up PostreSQL

Let me know how it goes!
