I fell in love with coding back in 1997 on a Commodore 64 making a text adventure in BASIC. Yup. 1997. This was before I knew the “shame” of programming BASIC was even a thing. I just had fun. Ignorant fun, of course. I once thought that there was a “journey” of languages to learn, “Assembly” being the crown of them all.
Recently I noted how I was picking up some Ruby in order to do some Rails work because I want the Four Job Fiesta site to run better. After finishing the eBook I picked up to give myself a quick intro to Ruby, I decided to get Rails up and running.
And there went most of my night.
Let’s get Ruby 2.0.0, since they say that is what I should have for Rails development!
$ rvm install 2.0.0 Error: Failure while executing: git pull -q origin refs/heads/master:refs/remotes/origin/master
Googling told me I needed to get “brew” updated. Worry began to set in as I am now doing stuff that I do not know much about. But, up and away!
fatal: 'origin' does not appear to be a git repository fatal: Could not read from remote repository.
Thankfully, I found this.
And as per that Stack Overflow
$ cd `brew --prefix` $ git remote add origin https://github.com/mxcl/homebrew.git $ git fetch origin $ git reset --hard origin/master $ brew update Already up-to-date.
Huz-fucking-zah. Ruby 2.0.0 installed fine and Rails right after. Problem is that I am beat just trying to get things up and running. I put a few more minutes of work into starting up a project and making sure things run on both my iMac and MBP. I goofed somewhere as I have to sudo in order to start up the server on the iMac for the one project I made, but in making another I seem to have no problems now.
Anyway. Video games. Then code tomorrow.
