Best Linux distro to code Rails

Hello Group,

I want to start a project that uses Rails 3 and ruby 1.9.2 . with
(Rmagick). Can any one tell me a Linux distro that supports these
software seamlessly?

I have only used ubuntu and unbuntu server and all work flawlessly, I
have
more problem on macosx than in ubuntu, because not everything i need is
found in Homebrew.

I don’t know what’s Rmagick, but maybe my little guide could help you:

If this is related to a personal development box I would say whatever
Linux distro you are happy that also meets your personal app
requirements and preferences. Rails run very well (and for all
intensive purposes is equally easy to install) on all of the major
Linux distros. So personally I would choose a distro based on what I
need and like and then lastly is rails compatible. For me that’s
Ubuntu as I found the most help online when starting out in term of
howtos and blog post etc.

For pure server based production deployment I have CentOS and Ubuntu
on the top of my list

All the best

I recommend using rvm to install ruby and rails. That way, whatever
distro
you use, you will be able to control your RoR installations. I’ve
tested
RoR on Ubuntu, Arch Linux, Debian, and Fedora. Of these, I ran into the
most problems with Ubuntu. I got things working just fine eventually,
but
Ubuntu had the most unmet dependencies and quirks. This was using fresh
installs of the most recent versions of each, but Ubuntu had older
versions
of some necessary packages, complicating things.

So, using rvm on any of these installations should bypass many headaches
you
run into with differences in local versions.

I am using Ubuntu and I have rvm. Working great so far!! no problems at
all…

I used rvm to install on CentOS (on my desktop), so far the ride has
been
very smooth. I am not sure about Rmagick.
