Does rails really have to be that much of a pain to install..
Quick question. So I recently got fed up with PHP for various reasons and I decided to try my hand at some of the more recent frameworks that everyone seems to be raving about recently. I narrowed my choices to Python/Django and Ruby/Rails.
So I went about doing an install of each on my Fedora Linux machine. Python/Django was a piece of cake but I had some real problems getting ruby and rails working. It just felt... well flakey and bodged (I had to use rvh and the whole gems thing was a pain in the a**). This of course put me off Rails completely before I had really begun but before I discount it entirely, am I missing something and is there an easier way to install the latest ruby and rails combo? If not, will I be missing much if I stick with Django?
