Installing Ruby

Hi Im am trying to Install Ruby onto my computer. I have managed to install homebrew and already have git installed from a previous course.

I am now trying to install the RVM however when i run the code i keep getting the following messages. I have tried using both the full installation code and the shortened code on the RVM homepage.

Garys-MacBook-Pro:~ Gary$ \curl https://raw.github.com/wayneeseguin/rvm/master/binscripts/rvm-installer | bash -s stable % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 --:--:-- 0:00:02 --:--:-- 0 Garys-MacBook-Pro:~ Gary$

Have i done something seriously wrong? As the terminal looks like it has spend 2 seconds doing nothing? While in your video quite a lot of code was shown in the terminal.

Do you have Xcode? I think this might be required.. But I can't remember that far back!

If you're on mavericks, you may find this quite a good read and this is a great cheatsheet for when you get into RVM.

I found this tutorial really great too!

Thanks tom, this is great.

Managed to get it to work eventually... (however now i've looked through those tutorials it appears that i didn't configure RVM properly!)

Thanks, these tutorials are great....!
