So, I have something happening that I don’t understand. I am on OS
10.5.6 and followed Dan Benjamin’s (Hivelogic) advice on how to
install Ruby, MySQL… As he suggests, I added . ~/.bash_login with
the path for the MySQL installation. I also added . ~/.profile with
the path for the Ruby installation.
Now, when I start Terminal and run:
% ruby -v # -> version 1.8.6
% gem list # -> I get a list with various versions of active record,
actionmailer, rake and… no mysql (2.7) gem
Then if I run:
% . ~/.profile
% ruby -v # -> version 1.8.7
% gem list # Get updated gem list including mysql gem
But if I close that terminal window and open a new one – the above is
Why does that happen? and how do I get the path to load automatically?
