Simplicity and Clarity by Design

Cookbook: Snow Leopard, RVM, Ruby on Rails

Recently I decided to clear out my RVM environments and start fresh. I’m running on a Snow Leopard MacBook Air. Here are the steps I went through.

$ curl -O
$ tar xvf readline-6.0.tar.gz
$ cd readline-6.0
$ ./config && make && sudo make install
$ cd ..
$ rm -rf $HOME/.rvm
$ bash < <(curl -s
$ rvm install 1.8.7 -C --with-arch=x86_64, --with-readline-dir=/usr/local
$ rvm system
$ rvm gemset export system.gems
$ rvm 1.8.7
$ rvm gemset import system
$ rvm --default 1.8.7

The following pages were helpful in figuring this out.
