It's time to download diaspora*! As your diaspora user run:
cd ~ git clone https://github.com/diaspora/diaspora.git cd diaspora
Don't miss the cd diaspora, all coming commands expect to be run from that directory!
cp config/database.yml.example config/database.yml cp config/diaspora.yml.example config/diaspora.yml
It's time to install the Ruby libraries required by diaspora*:
gem install bundler bin/bundle install --with
This takes quite a while. When it's finished, you should see a message similar to: Bundle complete! 137 Gemfile dependencies, 259 gems now installed. If that's not the case, you should seek for help on the mailing list or the IRC channel. The --jobs $(nproc) flag speeds things a bit since it enables parallel downloading. nproc shows the number of CPU cores you have available.
Running the manual gem install command shown in the error message can sometimes show a clearer error message if the bundle command fails.
Note: If you are installing on testing/stretch, you will need to rebuild the sigar gem. To do this, you need to run:
GEM_HOME=vendor/bundle/ruby/2.3.0 gem uninstall sigar bundle config --local build.sigar '--with-cppflags="-fgnu89-inline"'
Afterwards, you need to re-run the bundle install command.
(It might be possible to run this sigar build prior to running the initial bundle install command, but this has not been tested.)
Double check your config/database.yml looks right and run:
bin/rake db:create db:schema:load
