Setup rails


#1

Hi

I m begining in Ruby

I follow this tuotiriel
http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/RailsOnWindows

After I setup, I typed this command
gem update --system

But it says, this command is unknown ?!!!


#2

What O/S are you on ?
Has Gem been previously installed somehow ?
gem update is only relevant if it has previously been installed.
More info and I’m sure help will come !

The CLASSPATH WAS :
.;C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_07\lib\ext\QTJava.zip

I CHANGED IT TO
.;C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_07\lib\ext\QTJava.zip;C:\ruby\bin

IS THAT OK ? :slight_smile: It does not work yet ? :frowning:

Just in case you are having trouble with your Windows path variable,
here’s how to add a folder to it:

*Go to your desktop and right click “My Computer”.

*Select “properties” from the menu.

*Click the “Advanced” tab.

*At the bottom of the window, there’s a button labeled “Environment
Variables”. Click it.

*There are two listboxes on the window, the bottom one is called
“System
variables”. Scroll through that box until you come across “Path”.
Select
“Path” and click the “Edit” button.

*Click the “Variable value” textbox and hit the “End” key on your
keyboard. Type a semi-colon followed by the absolute path to your
ruby
bin folder.

Also, you can always check what folder IRB is running in by typing
“Dir.pwd”. You can get a list of all the .rb file in the folder IRB
is
currently operating in with “Dir.glob(’*.rb’)”. Also, you can change
the
path that IRB is operating in with “Dir.chdir(‘c:\my_ruby_files’)”.

what a silly girl I am :((( I installed rails BUT NOT RUBY !!!
Now I’m installing ruby first before installing rails …

Oh ! no, I think ruby = rails ? The two files I’m trying to download are
finally the same …

OK, Please, tell me if I’m on the right way

FIRST
I uninstalled ruby from my computer

SECOND
I download and install this link for windows
http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/GettingStartedWithRails

Is that ok ?
