Error installing ROR on Ubuntu


#1

Hi, I’m trying to install Ruby On Rails on Ubuntu 6.06, running on a AMD
Turion64.

I installed the ruby interpreter, RubyGems and wrote:

*gem install rails --include-dependencies

*but I’m receiving the following error message:

ERROR: While executing gem … (Gem::InstallError)
gzip error installing
/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/cache/activesupport-
1.4.1.gem

It seems like it can’t install the activesupport dependency.
I even tried to update my gzip but it didn’t work either.

Any toughts on that?

Thank you.

I would check you permissions on your Ruby installation. You may need
to run the command as root:

sudo gem install…

I have already tried that as well =(

Thanks anyway

Have you tried the deprec way?
See the free screencast :

It takes care of everything.
