As Dreamhost has not been keeping up to date with their Ruby installation the support has suggested that I just compile it myself in my user directory and run it from there.
A fine suggestion so I have been attempting to do just that using the documentation here as a guide only:
The last time this guide seems to have been updated is 2009.
It’s going pretty well except I am anticipating problems down the road because I noticed a number of the compiles were looking here:
this was causing some errors but for some reason no fails…
but obviously what I would rather would be if everything I run were to be looking here for everything gem related:
examining my PATH i see that it’s pointing up to the old place…
-bash: /home/tribey/local/bin:/home/tribey/usr/bin/:/home/tribey/usr/share/:/home/tribey/.gems/bin:/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/bin/:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/usr/games: No such file or directory
(don’t know why /usr/games is in there either)
I don’t know if this is why the compile of rubygems was looking there…
looking at my .bash_profile and .bashrc does not provide any answers.
Can anyone tell me where these paths are being set so I can change them?
If anyone can offer any other suggestions or advice please feel free.
this is the website that I am setting this up under which at the moment is dumping alot of information about the environment…
