I keep getting an error message when i try an install rails. I am using xp.These are the steps i took. 1. Download the One-click ruby installer from rubyforge http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=167 (warning this is a big file!). The one I used was ruby186-25.exe but there may be a later version available. To be able to run the whole environment from a USB stick Iâ€™d really recommend you have about 500MB free (maybe itâ€™s time to buy a new stick?) 2. Double-click on the installer, after clicking next a few times, a screen like the one shown below is displayed (pic of installation screen) 3.Ensure you install on your USB stick, not the C drive (check the drive letter, as shown. Mine is J:, yours may vary) i used C drive, was told to do it on usb to because was doing it on network. 4. Once Ruby is installed, open a cmd prompt (enter cmd into the â€˜runâ€™ box from the start menu) change to your ruby directory (e.g. j:\ruby ) and enter the follow command: 5. gem install rails -y 6. You may need to add the ruby directory to your system path, the setenv.bat file discussed in class will do this â€“ the command is: 7. set path=%PATH%;j:\ruby\bin; 1. Remember to change the drive letter (j: in the example above) to match the letter assigned to your USB stick. This will probably be different for each system â€“ itâ€™s a windows foible â€“ what a wonderful system :) (maybe you should try Linux? â€“ ok Rant over.) This is why we suggested in the lecture that you put the command above in its own file, which we called setenv.bat, so that itâ€™s easy to change 8. The gem command should install rails, see below for a database I got stuck on step 5 and i also used ruby186-27_rc2.exe "error: http://gems.rubyforge.org/ does not appear to be a repository error: could not find gem rails locally or in a repository" Can anyone help please!
