I’m just getting started with RoR, and I’m none too good at Linux
But anyway, I got ruby-1.8.4.tar.gz and rubygems-0.8.11 and unpacked
them in separate directories under my normal user (jim) home and went
there and did
./configure, then make, then make test (test succeeded), then su - and
make install, and then in the unpacked RubyGems folder, ruby setup.rb,
all with no obvious errors.
Now I go to the RubyGems folder and try to install Rails and I get:
RubyGems/rubygems-0.8.11/bin # gem install rails --include-dependencies
require__': no such file to load -- zlib (LoadError) from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:21:inrequire’
require' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/builder.rb:1 from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:21:inrequire’
so then when I type
bash: rails: command not found
Sorry if this is a stupid Linux error on my part, but hey, I gotta start
Thanks for any help on Rails or Linux or SuSE 9.3 (which, I
understand, is not just any Linux.
