RVM on Ubuntu 11.04

August 7th, 2011

I've been installing Ubuntu 11.04 at last. Unfortunately, rvm choked up. It claimed to install properly, but choked when trying to do the simplest gem commands.

ERROR:  Loading command: install (LoadError)
    no such file to load -- zlib
ERROR:  While executing gem ... (NameError)
    uninitialized constant Gem::Commands::InstallCommand

The solution was hidden in some comments in stack overflow.

rvm pkg install zlib
rvm uninstall 1.8.7 #this can be 1.9.2 or ree, whatever
rvm install 1.8.7 --with-zlib-dir=$rvm_path/usr
