macos – install Ruby 1.8.6 with rvm in Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard failed – Education Career Blog

I’m trying to learn Ruby on Rails and wanted to follow Apple’s example:
http://developer.apple.com/tools/developonrailsleopard.html

It requires Ruby 1.8.6 and Rails 2.0.2

My machines is already updated to 1.9.1. I wanted to use rvm to install 1.8.6 but it failed during make with the following log:

Can anyone help? I’m totally lost here…

That article i 2.5 years old. I wouldn’t recommend following it. If you still wants to then you could try to rvm install Ruby 1.8.7. I’ve never heard of any compability issues between 1.8.6 and 1.8.7.

I would instead recommend that you follow Setting up a Rails Development System on Mac OSX Snow Leopard and from there the regular Getting Started with Rails.
