RVM

We recommend using Ruby Version Manager it will ensure you're always on the currently recommended Ruby version and cleanly separate your Diaspora installation from all other Ruby applications on your machine. If you opt for not using it ensure your Ruby version is at least 2.0.0, prior versions are incompatible. Be aware that this version is not maintained with security updates from the Ruby core team anymore. We currently recommend using the latest release of the 2.1 series.

Install RVM

As the user you want to run Diaspora under, that is not as root run:

curl -L s.diaspora.software/1t | bash

and follow the instructions. If you get GPG signature problems, follow the instructions printed by the command. If those commands give you permission denied errors, change them to 640 for all files and 750 for all folders in the .gnupg folder.

Set up RVM

Ensure the following line is in your ~/.bashrc:

[[ -s "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" ]] && source "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm"

Now close all your terminals and open a new one or run source ~/.bashrc in all of them.

If you don't have sudo installed or your current user doesn't have the privileges to execute it, run:

rvm autolibs read-fail

The the next command will check if all dependencies to build Ruby are installed. If these are not met, you will see a list of packages preceded by "Missing required packages:". As root install all the packages listed there for your OS. Then rerun the install command.

Ensure the currently recommend version of Ruby is installed:

rvm install 2.1
