Rails version


I have a rails version installed that was obtained from executing
“apt-get install rails”. (New installation of Ubuntu 7.0.x)

I had problems configuring and using gems to install it. The ./configure
script throw errors with missing ‘zlib’ even though I made sure all the
required libraries were installed.

Anyway ‘apt-get’ worked, but now I can’t verify what version of rails
I’m using, rails -v and rails --version both aren’t valid switches /

The ‘help’ screen that pops up has no info on seeing the version.

Any help would be great.


Best bet, make a rails site real quick “rails testsite” then in
run “ruby script/about”. Will tell you everything you want to know about
Rails environment.
