This noob is trying to install ruby through rvm and encountering
If I run ‘rvm install ruby-1.8.7-p352’ as user I get
‘Failed to create the file ruby-1.8.7-p352.tar.bz2: Permission denied’.
If I run it as sudo, it installs, but when I try ‘rvm use 1.8.7’ I get
‘ruby ruby-1.8.7-p357 is not installed.’
I’m confused. Anyone have any suggestions?
Did you install RVM with sudo? then you need to read RVM documentation
If you missed the red part that says:
“Multi-User installations - For server administrators - For an
installation usable by all users on the system - Please note that
Single-User supercedes Multi-User. This also used to be called the
System-Wide Install. Using this type of installation without knowledge
how umask works is a big security risk.”
Without knowing how you installed it this is the only thing I can think
