So, I am relatively new to unix and Ruby on Rails. I'm currently
working on the Ruby on Rails Tutorial. I'm using OS 10.5.8. I had
installed Ruby 1.8.7 and RubyGems 1.3.5 into /usr/local/bin/ and
had installed Git as well. Everything was working fine and I was
Then I ended a shell session, came back to it and the whole
RubyGem prefix and executable changed to the system installed:
and started running Ruby 1.8.6 and RubyGems 1.0.1.
What happened? How do I get back to my original path to the Ruby
1.8.7 and RubyGem 1.3.5. Or should I just try and upgrade the
existing path to Ruby 1.8.7, etc.? Could rvm help this problem and
My path looks like:
And my gem environment is:
- RUBYGEMS VERSION: 1.0.1 (1.0.1) - RUBY VERSION: 1.8.6 (2009-06-08
patchlevel 369) [universal-darwin9.0] - INSTALLATION DIRECTORY:
/Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8 - RUBYGEMS PREFIX:
- RUBY EXECUTABLE:
- RUBYGEMS PLATFORMS:

advise you to install/use RVM, which will actually work without a
lot of manual finagling:
