Setup Ubuntu 16.10 Yakkety Yak Discussion

General • Asked by Chris Oliver

I also had to install `ruby-dev` from apt repos before installing the rails gem.


curl -sSL https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable should be changed to curl -SSL https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable returns couldn't get connect to server.


If someone chose RVM to work with Ruby I suggest you will need to type:
'echo "source \$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" >> ~/.bashrc'
instead of:
'source ~/.rvm/scripts/rvm'
Because otherwise your terminal will remember this source only for current session and next time you ask for 'ruby -v' or 'gem install ...' you'll get answer like 'The program 'gem' is currently not installed. You can install'

Nice guide, by the way
