The reason I ask this elementary question is because when I originally
installed ruby and rails, after the so-called installation was
completed, many of the required files were found to be missing from
the ‘install’ directory (/usr/local/lib/ruby) but existed in the
extract directory (/home/software), so something about the ‘install’
failed seemingly because I had not extracted the .tar.gz into a place
friendly to the install.
Thanks in advance for any help.
