so any idea what is going wrong ??
and how i can use (install) another server other than WEbrick ??

It’s nothing to do with webrick - Active Resource is trying to load
net/https which apparently you don’t have (linux distros often split
ruby into several bits). You could either install the missing bits of
ruby or disable Active Resource


Search on the Ubuntu wiki for Rails install help. It’s a process, but
if you follow it and do it right, you get a much better install, at
least for beginners.


Install ruby using atp-get
Install gems (from urls given in the guide)
Install everything else from gems
