Help: Ruby Newbie Trying to Install on OSX 10.7.3

I entered in “rails” from the terminal prompt. Here is what I
got… any help is appreciated

Last login: Sun Mar 11 15:26:54 on console
67-61-37-207:~ clesceri$ rails
Rails is not currently installed on this system. To get the latest
version, simply type:

$ sudo gem install rails

You can then rerun your “rails” command.
67-61-37-207:~ clesceri$ sudo gem install rails
Password:
ERROR: While executing gem … (Gem::RemoteSourceException)
HTTP Response 302 fetching http://gems.rubyforge.org/yaml
67-61-37-207:~ clesceri$

So I did some searching and it said I need to update my ruby version.
67-61-37-207:rubygems-1.8.17 clesceri$ ruby setup.rb

and I get

ERROR: While executing gem … (Errno::EACCES)
Permission denied - /Library/Ruby/Site/1.8/gauntlet_rubygems.rb
67-61-37-207:rubygems-1.8.17 clesceri$ gem i rails --no-rdoc --no-ri

I am wanting to learn how to write rails but this is hard to get this
installed. Any help is appreciated.

as ‘user’ you don’t have sufficient privileges… hence the need to
invoke ‘sudo’ (when it asks for a password, give it your password on the
Macintosh itself which assumes that you have ‘admin’ privileges)

For now, just stay with the ruby you have and you can update to a newer
ruby, perhaps even using something like rvm (ruby version manager)

just as it says…

sudo gem install rails

Hey Kisha… track the messages more closely. I was not the OP and
rather was suggesting a solution to the OP.
