Errors using ruby script/console


#1

HI all, when i try to use the rails console with this command, ruby
script/console, i got the following errors:

/usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/completion.rb:10:in require': no such file to load -- readline (LoadError) from /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/completion.rb:10 from /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/init.rb:252:inrequire’
from /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/init.rb:252:in load_modules' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/init.rb:250:ineach’

from /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/irb.rb:54:in `start’
from /usr/local/bin/irb:13

googled up and follow all instructions, still hitting this error. Any
ideas?

will show u guys a step by step.

  1. apt-get install libncurses5-dev libreadline5-dev

  2. cd /ruby-1.8.6/ext/readline$

  3. ruby extconf.rb

  4. make

  5. sudo make install
