Posted in Setup Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander Discussion

I fixed the wrapping so everything is on one line now! :)

Posted in Setup Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander Discussion

Sorry, there's word wrapping there. Those two lines are meant to be one.

Posted in Deploy Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin Discussion

Ah thanks! Fixed that up. :)

Posted in Setup Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander Discussion

Try running sudo apt-get update and then the install again. Maybe your repository list is out of date.

Posted in Setup Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander Discussion

Yes! That is correct. I'll try to update the tutorial soon to note that. Thanks!

Posted in Setup Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander Discussion

Fixed! Thanks for pointing those out Abe.

If you used rbenv, you'll need to run "rbenv rehash" to get it to see the new version of Rails.

Make sure you haven't installed Rails from another method. It seems as if you've got two copies of Rails installed.

Posted in Setup Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail Discussion

Good to hear, and let me know via email if you have anything that should be changed.

Posted in Setup Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail Discussion

Thanks for the notes! I'll update the tut.

You're missing the autoconf package. Just run sudo apt-get install autoconf and it should work if you try again.

Thanks for the kind words Nes! I've been planning how we're going to do the Rails content with the same sort of clarity and we will definitely be taking you along step by step. Hop on the mailing list and I'll be sure to let you know when they are out. :)

Sounds like curl isn't able to authenticate with your proxy. You might just try adding the proxy credentials into the curl command. You can run man curl in terminal to get the docs on it.

I think you can pretty much follow the MySQL instructions and it is a seamless replacement. Try following those and you should be good.

Posted in Setup Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail Discussion

No, actually you have to set it up. That's sort of where my tutorial leaves off I guess.

Add gem "mysql2" to your gemfile, change the adapter in database.yml to adapter: "mysql2" and add a password line that has the database password. Run bundle install and restart your Rails app and you should be good to go!

You may also need to run rake db:create to have Rails create the database for you.

Posted in Setup Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail Discussion

That's saying that your database connection to the database isn't working. You may have specified a password when you installed MySQL or a different username than root. Update your database.yml to specify the database, make sure you have the mysql2 or pg gem installed in the Gemfile, and you'll be good to go.

Posted in Trying Out Bootstrap 3.0 Discussion

Perfectly good! :) Gems get installed to a location like that when you're in development. It's mostly because you shouldn't ever modify the gem's code, so they don't want to place it in a location where you might be tempted. If you do want to modify the gem, you can fork it and use either the github or path options when specifying a gem to user your own version. This didn't make much sense to me either the first time I used it.

It sounds like you're missing the openssl lib and that's causing it to fail. Can you check to make sure you have libssl-dev installed?

Posted in Trying Out Bootstrap 3.0 Discussion

Make sure you didn't put this gem or the sass gem inside the assets group because Rails 4 no longer uses it. If that's not it, paste your Gemfile in a gist and I'll take a look!

Posted in Setup Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail Discussion

Thanks Al! I'll be updating the tutorial shortly. I think I wrote it when Rails 4.0 wasn't out yet but hadn't updated it since.
