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.
Double check your config/database.yml looks right and run:
bin/rake db:create db:migrate
