Why use the Bitnami Ruby Stack?
Bitnami makes it easy to run Ruby in the cloud, locally or virtually. The Bitnami Ruby Stack is:
We track every release of Ruby and update our stack shortly after it's released.
If serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of Ruby as soon as possible, often within hours of the availability of a fix.
With Bitnami, you get the same software stack and configuration regardless of where you are deploying Ruby or other Bitnami Applications. This makes it easy to migrate between different platforms.
With the Bitnami Ruby Stack compiling, configuring and all of its dependencies are taken care of, so it works out-of-the-box.

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!!!!
