Another newbie here.
I have installed Ruby on a PC running openSolaris 2009.06.
I installed Ruby 1.8.7p72 and Ruby Gems 1.3.5. , then installed Rails 2.3.5.
MySQL (5.1.41 Community Server) was already installed. I created the Rails application shovell. and I can start the application using ruby script/server. But when I come to use the console I get an error:
Loading development environment (Rails 2.3.5)
require': no such file to load -- readline (LoadError)require'
from /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/irb.rb:54:in `start'
I have looked around on the web and found one suggestion to go back to ruby source code ruby-1.8.7-p72/ext/readline and run the following commands:
But this made no difference.
Any help appreciated.
