incorrect documentation about install ruby, rubygems and rubyonrail

Reported by dinesharora | September 24th, 2010 @ 06:35 AM

The web site rubyonrails.
The documentation at is incorrect. It says to install ruby and
then rubygems. Does not differentiate between versions 1.8.x or 1.9.x.

I downloaded and installed ruby 1.9.2, and following the instructions tried to install rubygems 1.3.7, which failed with a traceback.

Luis Lavena from rubygems explained that rubygems is already bundeled in 1.9.1 and 1.9.2. Does not need to be installed. Please update the instructions on download webpage.

    The resources of the Rails core team are limited, and so we are asking for your help. If you can still reproduce this error on the 3-0-stable branch or on master, please reply with all of the information you have about it and add "[state:open]" to your comment. This will reopen the ticket for review. Likewise, if you feel that this is a very important feature for Rails to include, please reply with your explanation so we can consider it.

    Thank you for all your contributions, and we hope you will understand this step to focus our efforts where they are most helpful.
