NOOB - Try to install Ruby... Help!
Hello TreeHouse Forum!
I'm watching the Ruby Course and I've been stuck simply trying to install the Railsnstaller. I keep getting the following error message
"There has been an error. Error changing group of / opt/rix to dvm The application will exit now. "
What do I do?

It's a permissions error. The easiest way to fix it, is to run
Repair Disk Permissions on your hard drive.

Hey Shaun, are you trying to install Ruby on a Windows or OSX machine? (Or Linux?)
OSX Version 10.8.2
Shaun, can you please tell us what errors you're getting?

Hey Shaun, this is a strange error. Try restarting your computer and re-running the RailsInstaller, I've heard reports that helps.
Hey guys thanks for all your help , I got an email from Jason telling me to do the same thing as James suggested ... And now it works! Thanks everyone! Now my problem is how do you get the terminal to find the text mate .rb document?
Are you just trying to open the
.rb document in TextMate from the terminal? If so, make sure you have have the
mate command installed using the pane pictured here:
Then just type
mate path/to/file.rb in the terminal and the file should open in TextMate. If that's not what you're looking for just let us know and we'll do our best to get you sorted.
