Learning rails - updating to 2.2

One of my New Years resolutions is to learn Ruby On Rails, the hip young web development framework popularized by sites and applications such as Basecamp or Twitter. Being on a mac, installing and running rails is dead easy, just a few terminal commands. I’d toyed around with it a few months ago, but didn’t get too far.But now, with the new 2.2 version out I decided to give it another go.I tried updating to the latest version with the terminal command:

sudo gem update –system

to get the RubyGems to update to 1.3.1. However, the command simply returned:

nothing to update

But checks revealed it was still at v.1.2, so there clearly WAS still something to update. A couple of google searches later, and I’d found the solution to properly update RubyGems to the correct version:

sudo gem install rubygems-updatesudo update_rubygems

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a train to catch! *groan*
