I've found various online instructions for installing Rails on Ubuntu but none of them are perfect. First things first, I already have Ruby 1.8.4 installed. The executable was named ruby1.8 so I alias'd it to ruby so gem would work. I installed rubygems-0.9.2 successfully and all the other libraries like rdoc, irb, etc. Here is what I get when I try and install Rails: gdboling@gdboling-laptop:~/Desktop/rubygems-0.9.2$ gem install rails -- include-dependencies Bulk updating Gem source index for: http://gems.rubyforge.org ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::GemNotFoundException) Could not find rails (> 0) in any repository Any help is appreciated. Gregg

There's a free screencast that shows the whole process in one go: http://topfunky.com/clients/peepcode/free-episodes... , and it's documented elsewhere : http://wiki.slicehost.com/doku.php?id=automated_ra... Alain ----8<------------------------------- Please post here about any further battles. I once installed Rails on a Kubuntu, got it working, tried to install it on another Kubuntu (from the same distro CD!), and never got it working. Finally I threw in CentOS, which is a stealth RedHat. -- Phlip http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?ZeekLand <-- NOT a blog!!
