Yesterday, I was having a problem with db:migrate. I was told my version
of rails was too old, and I needed to install it from gems instead of
the version in my version of Ubuntu. Since then, I’ve done that, and I
built ruby 1.8.4 from source and installed it. The installation was to
/usr/local/bin. As my distribution had put ruby 1.8.3 in /usr/bin, I
renamed that and put a link to the version in /usr/local/bin in
If I run ruby --version, I see
[email protected]:~/ruby/rails$ ruby --version
ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [i686-linux]
/usr/bin/ruby gives the same results.
I still can’t run rails, though. When I type
Rails does not work with Ruby version 1.8.3.
Please upgrade to version 1.8.4 or downgrade to 1.8.2.
I don’t even have a ruby version 1.8.3 on my system anymore. Why can’t I
All help appreciated.
