Hi, sorry it is on the wrong place.. Didn’t exactly know where to post it. Anyway, I am trying to learn Ruby on Rails and I am having a problem with installing it. I just can’t install it, it keeps giving me errors. Is there anyone who is willing to help me with installing this?

Thanks Adam

Thank you very much, installed it on both my Mac & PC. Do you think Cygwin is the right way to install in PC?

Have no idea, started using Rails only recently and only on Mac.

The best way to install everything you need for windows is to use http://railsinstaller.org/. You will be up and running in no time. As for The Mac, Ruby 1.8.7 is already installed so all you have to do is install gems and then install rails with a couple of command line inputs.

If you want to use Ruby 1.9.x I would recommend using RVM to manage your Ruby versions http://rvm.beginrescueend.com/. This way you can run multiple versions of Ruby.

I highly recommend the Rails for Zombies website. (http://railsforzombies.org/)

Good Luck!
