Thanks Bitnami with all these stacks we as a developer no longer need to worry about installing and configuring things in any operating system anymore. It's truly amazing how Bitnami has so many stacks which works for everyone and I really like you guys.
I concur with @Lindsay Morris. It was a nightmare trying to figure it all out only to not work! This was easy.
I am attempting to run Ruby stack but console doesn't show $ prompt. when I changed to projects/sample using cd command, it worked without $ prompt. But when I types ruby bin/rails server I got some text on the screen and then it hung up. I did ctrl-C to stop server. what am I doing wrong?
I have downloaded and tried virtual machine. It failed. It needs update. You will get lots of error. Waste of time.
Nightmare of incompatibilities between ruby, rails, and various gems.
I spent hours googling around for similar problems (and finding MANY! how can rails developers think this is OK?) and every time I solve one, I hit another one. No end in site.
Then I got the Bitnami RubyStack; copied my project inot the projects directory: had to run
and BANG: running again. Back to real work instead of fighting my own toolset.
Thank you Bitnami!!!!
