Installing RoR

Related with http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/209991

I’m trying to install RoR on Windows XP x86 by using CYGWIN.

The versions I have installed are:

gem -v
1.8.10

ruby -v
ruby 1.8.7 (2008-08-11 patchlevel 72) [i386-cygwin]

I’ve tried to install rails the system and I got errors

$ gem install rails --version 3.0.0
ERROR: Could not find a valid gem ‘rails’ (= 3.0.0) in any repository
ERROR: While executing gem … (Gem::RemoteFetcher::FetchError)
Errno::EPERM: Operation not permitted - connect(2)
(http://rubygems.org/late
st_specs.4.8.gz)

The other thread also the same issue. But the answer was "Maybe you need
to connect the internet via proxy?

and the user “anon_comp (Guest)” was able to solve the issue & his
comment was "Success, it was merely my server blocking gem. Thanks for
the help!

How did you solve it? Pls give detailed steps.? …

Please help

Thanks

gem help install

see for --http-proxy option which accepts an URI or use HTTP_PROXY
environment variable:

gem install foo --http-proxy=http://user:[email protected]:port/

Hope that helps,

have you tried the Rails Installer(railsinstaller.com)?

I have found this is the easiest way to get rails up and running on
windows.

I was able to get ROR installed on windows XP and I felt it was
stable. I wrote about it here.

I dont think you want to install ruby 1.8.7 with rails 3.0.0… i
was never able to get everything working in windows reliably so i went
with ubuntu on my windows box and have good success with that… But
one problem i had wad trying to use the older ruby with the newer
rails… I did find something eventually about the mix on google
but dont remember the link… Good luck
