Warning message when upgrading rvm

Hi there,

I have this when trying to upgrade rvm

/Users/nelly/.zshrc:56:export PATH="/Users/nelly/.rvm/gems/ruby-2.2.1/bin:/Users/nelly/.rvm/gems/ruby-2.2.1@global/bin:/Users/nelly/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.2.1/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/Users/nelly/.rvm/bin"

  * WARNING: Above files contains `PATH=` with no `$PATH` inside, this can break RVM,
    for details check https://github.com/rvm/rvm/issues/1351#issuecomment-10939525
    to avoid this warning append #PATH.

  * No new notes to display

I am not sure what to do... I am affraid to break all....

export PATH=$PATH"/Users/nelly/.rvm/gems/ruby-2.2.1/bin:/Users/nelly/.rvm/gems/ruby-2.2.1@global/bin:/Users/nelly/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.2.1/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/Users/nelly/.rvm/bin"

Nelly Nelly , that's good, but you need a colon (:) separating your $PATH variable from the rest of the string. (Notice how all the other directories have : separating them.) If your path consisted of /usr/bin previously, you now have an entry in your path pointing to /usr/bin/Users/nelly/.rvm/gems/ruby-2.2.1/bin (which probably doesn't exist).

Try this:

export PATH=${PATH}:/Users/nelly/.rvm/gems/ruby-2.2.1/bin:/Users/nelly/.rvm/gems/ruby-2.2.1@global/bin:/Users/nelly/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.2.1/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/Users/nelly/.rvm/bin"
