Using MacPorts To Install Ruby 1.9.1 and Rails 2.3.0 RC1

WARNING: If you want to live on the edge, please continue with the
steps
below. Also, please be aware that all gems are not fully compatible
with
Ruby 1.9.1 stable release (i.e. 1.9.1p0). Furthermore, this
installation requires you to remove ALL Ruby related gems and ports
because
we are performing a clean install. Lastly, I am using an
experimental machine (i.e. Apple PowerMac G5) to complete this task and
I
would
NOT advise the below actions within a production environment.

  1. Remove Previous Ruby Ports (i.e. ruby, ruby19, rb-*, and so on) and
    Gems

    a) Ports

    sudo port uninstall
    sudo port clean

    Note: Execute the above for all ruby related ports.

    b) Gems

    rm -rf /opt/local/lib/ruby
    rm -rf /opt/local/lib/ruby19

    Note: You may not need to execute both commands and this really
    depends on what you have installed and how.

  2. Remove Rake ( Optional If It Does Not Exist )

    sudo rm -rf /opt/local/bin/rake

  3. Install Ruby 1.9.1, SQLite3, and Mysql 5 Ports

    sudo port install ruby19 +nosuffix
    sudo port mysql5 +server
    sudo port sqlite3

    Note: The above ruby19 install generates the required executables
    without the extension.

  4. Install Rack, Rake, and Rails 2.3.0 Ruby Gems

    sudo gem install rack
    sudo gem install rake
    sudo gem install rails --source=http://gems.rubyonrails.org

  5. Install SQLite 3 Ruby Gem

    sudo gem install sqlite3-ruby

  6. Install MySQL 2.8.1 Ruby Gem

    sudo gem install kwatch-mysql-ruby –
    –with-mysql-config=/opt/local/lib/mysql5/bin/mysql_config

  7. Install Thin

    sudo gem install thin

  8. Generate Rails Test Application

    rails test

  9. Change To The Root Of Rails Application

    cd test

  10. Start Thin

    script/server thin

    Note: The above command produces the above warning message:

           warning: encoding option is ignored - N
    
  11. Navigate To The Site Using Your Browser:

    URL: http://localhost:3000

    Result: You should see the “Rails Welcome aboard” page.

  12. Now, Let Us Generate A Simple Blog

    script/generate scaffold blog title:string text:text

    Note: The above command produces the above warning message:

            warning: encoding option is ignored - N
    
  13. Migrate The Database

    rake db:migrate

  14. Navigate To The Site Using Your Browser:

    URL: http://localhost:3000/blogs

    and interact with the Rails application to verify that things are
    working.

  15. If you made it this far,

    you are running Rails 2.3.0 RC1 and Ruby 1.9.1.

Good luck,

-Conrad

For the archives:

  1. Start Thin
 script/server thin

Thin works, but WEBrick encounters an error:

Internal Server Error
undefined method `each'

Yes, this is the expected behavior when trying to use WEBrick instead of
Thin.

Expected by whom? It certainly wasn’t expected by me, and I suspect it
won’t be expected by other newbies. Anyway, thanks again for the
step-by-step instruction.

It was expected by me. If WEBrick was working, I would had added the
following
use case for step (9):

script/server

instead of

script/server thin

Furthermore, WEBrick and Mongrel wasn’t updated to support ruby 1.9.1 at
the
time I was
putting this tutorial together. Lastly, I plan to turn these
instructions
into a blog post so that
I can easily update it.

Google brought me here.

  1. Install Ruby 1.9.1, SQLite3, and Mysql 5 Ports

    sudo port install ruby19 +nosuffix
    sudo port mysql5 +server
    sudo port sqlite3

    Note: The above ruby19 install generates the required executables
    without the extension.

I installed ruby 1.9.1 with the 1.9 suffix, and I think ./script/server
is confused and is trying to run the old ruby stuff that ships with OSX.
Does it mean I have to reinstall everything from scratch with the
+nosuffix flag?

Thanks

I confirm I needed to reinstall ruby with +nosuffix. Now it all works,
well except ruby-debug which won’t compile :frowning:

If you’re using Rails 3, it is recommended that you use Ruby 1.9.2.
If this is the case, then you might want to use RVM for installing
Ruby by doing the following:

rvm install 1.9.2- head

Good luck,

I’m still running 2.3.8 until 3 goes official. I’ll give a try at RVM.

By the way my machine runs Tiger on a PowerPC, is there any issue I
might run into?

If you’re using Rail 2.3.8, I would still recommend using Ruby 1.9.2
instead
of Ruby 1.9.1. Why?

Next, I would recommend upgrading to Leopard but you should be good
with Tiger.

Good luck,
