I'm having trouble even installing new rails apps. I get to the Bundle run, and it errors on Json, here's what my error says. I'm new to ALL of this, including Terminal commands, etc. Hope someone can help me out. Runs the Bundler.... then I error out at this: "Installing json (1.7.6) with native extensions Gem::Installer::ExtensionBuildError: ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension. /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/bin/ruby extconf.rb mkmf.rb can't find header files for ruby at /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/lib/ruby/ruby.h Gem files will remain installed in /Users/aronoff/.bundler/tmp/8712/gems/json-1.7.6 for inspection.

Make sure that `gem install json -v '1.7.6'` succeeds before bundling." I was hoping you guys could help me. Thanks!

I see from those paths that you appear to be on a Mac. Here are my recommendations for getting started with the latest versions of Ruby and Rails. Step 1: Install Homebrew. http://mxcl.github.com/homebrew/ Step 2: Install and configure rbenv and ruby-build using Homebrew. $ brew install rbenv $ brew install ruby-build https://github.com/sstephenson/rbenv Step 3: Install Ruby 1.9.3 $ rbenv install 1.9.3-p327 Step 4: Install Rails $ gem install rails Step 5: Create a new Rails app: $ rails new my_first_app Step 6: Profit!

And, don't forget to set the newly installed Ruby as your default Ruby version: $ rbenv global 1.9.3-p237 or $ rbenv local 1.9.3-p237 (from inside your Rails project folder)

OK.... I went the Homebrew route, after some googling and tried to update my 1.8.7 Ruby to 1.9.3 like you mentioned and I'm STILL running into a permissions thing with my Library and that Gems directory. After running $ gem install rails bundler unicorn pg .... I get this: Permission denied - /Users/aronoff/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p194/cache/activesupport-3.2.11.gem ----- Is this a chmod thing I need to do? I'm not that familiar with that kind of stuff either. Thank you all for your help, I really appreciate it!

Hey, This is because you installed rvm, which is my preference but I have no qualms about you using rbenv. For some reason the permissions on something in your rvm directory got changed. sudo chown -r $USER:/$USER $HOME/.rvm That will help there. I can help you continue to use rvm if you want. If ~/.rvm/scripts/rvm is sourced in your shell, you likely just need to set a new default ruby. rvm list # lists locally installed rubies You might want to make sure you have the one you want. I suggest rvm install 1.9.3, which gets you the latest patch set rvm knows about. After that, you do this rvm use <ruby> --default Whichever system you use, for simplicity, I'd suggest removing the other. ~Spaceghost

Just to be clear, I was not exactly recommending rbenv over RVM. I used to use RVM myself and it's a wonderful tool. I recently switched to rbenv preferring a more modular and lighter weight tool. What I was suggesting was to use something other than the build-in Ruby that OS X provides, given that was the version listed in the error message in the OP. As to Josh's problem, it really does sound like your system has some permission setting issues. I would suggest making sure you own all the files and directories in your home folder and to use "Disk Utilities" to try to repair the permissions of your system. Maybe something was installed to your home folder using the sudo command. That might have installed files to your home, but owned by "root" user instead of yourself.

Ok cool... Ugh, this permissions thing is driving me nuts. Can I just uninstall everything by deleting all the directories and re running the ruby and rails instals using either homebrow or rvm? to be clear, I'm only saying delete the ruby directory in my Library.

What exactly do you mean by "Library". There are several of those on OS X. /System/Library System owned library. Definitely DO NOT delete, or otherwise touch anything here. /Library Global library for third-party application use, not user specific. Slightly less dangerous to mess with this stuff, but you shouldn't have to. ~/Library This is you're library where you're user specific Preferences, Application Support, Caches, etc. are kept. You're free to do whatever you wish with this stuff. With that out of the way I'll see if I can flesh this out a bit more... Whether you choose RVM or rbenv, both (by default) create a hidden directory that is maintained by those tools. The tools are designed to be as unobtrusive to the normal operation of the operating system as possible (rbenv even more so than RVM). You should see something like this: $ cd ~ $ ls -la -rw-r--r--@ 1 robertwalker staff 15364 Jan 14 16:42 .DS_Store drwx------ 3 robertwalker staff 102 Apr 5 2011 .MacOSX drwxrwxrwt@ 3 robertwalker staff 102 Apr 13 2011 .TemporaryItems drwx------ 2 robertwalker staff 68 Jan 17 09:14 .Trash ... drwxr-xr-x 5 robertwalker staff 170 Jul 19 13:56 .rbenv If you notice that .rbenv (or .rvm) have a user other than yourself (e.g. root) your can fix that with: $ chown -R robertwalker:staff .rbenv Changes ownership of .rbenv and all it's contents recursively to user "robertwalker" and group "staff". You must also make sure your PATH is configured properly for rbenv or RVM to work properly. $ echo $PATH /Users/robertwalker/.rbenv/shims:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X11/bin:/opt/local/bin:/usr/local/git/bin Notice here that /Users/robertwalker/.rbenv/shims is the first path in the PATH environment variable. In the case of rbenv this is added by inserting this line... # Enable rbenv shims and autocompletion if which rbenv > /dev/null; then eval "$(rbenv init -)"; fi somewhere in your .profile (or similar) file. RVM has a similar setup. Read their docs for more. Once you verify these things make sure to tell rbenv (or RVM) which version of your installed Rubies to use: $ rbenv global 1.9.3-p327 That should be all that's necessary to get going with rbenv or RVM. I would recommend against messing with your system's built-in Ruby, or anything inside /System/Library or /Library.
