edit /etc/skel/.bashrc to add the necessary RVM initialization stuff

sudo su -
rvm install ruby-1.9.2-p0

rvm install ruby-1.9.2-head

(notes on config of Postgres on Ubuntu https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PostgreSQL)

curl ftp://ftp.ruby-lang.org:21//pub/ruby/1.9/ruby-1.9.2-p0.tar.gz > ruby-1.9.2-p0.tar.gz
tar xvf ruby-1.9.2-p0.tar.gz

cd ruby-1.9.2-p0
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/ror --enable-shared
make
make test
sudo make install

Create a file called /usr/local/ror/ror_env.sh. Add the following to it:

export PATH=/usr/local/ror/bin:$PATH

Run the command

sudo ln -s /usr/local/ror/ror_env.sh /etc/profile.d/ror_env.sh

sudo su -
gem update --system
gem install rails -v 3.0.3
gem install sqlite3-ruby
