Error when trying to install gem
When following along with the treehouse video, I get the following error.
$ gem install bundler ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::FilePermissionError) You don't have write permissions into the /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8 directory.
Any help on how to proceed would be helpful. Thanks

Hey there Mikeal, what really helped me was installing the Ruby Version Manager
Update your package manager : sudo apt-get update Make sure curl is installed : sudo apt-get install curl Install RVM : \curl -sSL https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --ruby
This should get everything you need installed
