Ruby On Rails is Running on the Ubuntu Box

Wednesday, January 14th, 2009

A couple of quick notes. First, the completion of the Ubuntu box and its successful boot yesterday fulfilled what I said I set out to do in one of my earliest posts: http://www.fromjumpstreet.com/?p=3#more-3

Also, by close of business yesterday I had also installed a second Ubuntu operating system in a separate partition on the main hard drive, and it carried with it the Ruby on Rails web development environment. I simply downloaded a turnkey Ruby on Rails implementation from http://www.turnkeylinux.org/appliances/rails and used InfraRecorder again to make an image onto a CD-ROM, then I booted from that image and allowed it to partition the hard drive on the Ubuntu box. Once that was done, Ruby on Rails was running on that box and could be accessed from any PC on my network through any web browser.
