I've seen posts claiming working Ruby 1.8.4 + Gems but either there was no link or instructions or the ipk didn't live up to the posted comments (I'm not having a go. I'm certainly not ruling out my own stupidity!).
I've seen posts asking if anyone has done it (Ruby-SQLite3) before they tried themselves.
I have installed Ruby and it seems to work although I didn't really stress it. running gem gave me the error "gem: command not found".
I installed RubyGems and did "gem install rails" but after saying: "Bulk updating Gem source index for: http://gems.rubyforge.org" it then comes up with "terminated" (very helpful). I did set the profile env variables as follows:
I realise this is probably not in the correct place but this was ruby's default.
So after failing with gem I grabbed the rails zip instead but now I'm stuck on getting the SQLite bindings and I really can't find these anywhere. I'm not a seasoned linux user let alone developer so don't really want to tackle porting just yet. Of course I could probably use MySQL but SQLite is ... er ... lite(!) so would prefer to use it. It also fits better with what I want to develop (on-device rails apps. You don't really want to run a DB engine unless you're using it).
If anyone has had success with this setup I'd love to hear about it and if any advice can be given all the better.
