I had some trouble installing Rails3 on OpenSuse. Then I thought to write some notes for the steps.
NOTE: If zypper does not find some library, use “download.opensuse.org” to find it.
First install rails (I’ll assume that you already have ruby installed from Yast)
sudo gem install rails
Unfortunately this is not enough: make sure you have correctly installed mysql.
sudo zypper install mysql mysql-devel
At this point, launching the server, we find that it does not work, because it still requires one step: Install NodeJs
sudo zypper install nodejs nodejs-devel
It 's all: let’s try it:
rails new bookmark_manager -d mysql cd bookmark_manager/ vim config/database.yml (if necessary, to enter the password) rake db:create rails generate scaffold bookmark url:string title:string description:text rake db:migrate rails server
