Installing Ruby

Hello.
I am really excited about trying Ruby and was following the install
instructions as found on the official website. I’ve met all the
prerequisites for Xcode and OS versions so I am a little baffled as to
what is happening now.

Upon typing : sudo make install

I am prompted for a password just like the instructions dicate would
occur:

“The first time we run the sudo command, and possible again later, we
may be prompted for a password. Weâ??ll just enter our own password here,
and the process will continue.”

However I can’t even type at the prompt.
I am assuming it needs my admin level password, the same one I use to
install applications locally but I can’t even type any characters? Can
someone please help me figure out why?

I should mention after 3 attempts it brings me back to the command line.

Thanks
Uri

sudo hides your typing when it prompts for a password. Just type in
your password and hit Enter.

You’ll find that the ‘sudo’ command doesn’t echo the output you’re
typing in (in
case someone’s looking over your shoulder) but it’s definitely listening
to the
keyboard.

This assumes that you have sudo priviledges to do the install, which
unfortunately I can’t tell you how to find out - someone else will know
that
