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 1.9.2-p320, prior versions are incompatible. Be aware that his version is not maintained with security updates from the Ruby core team anymore. We do not support Ruby 2.0 yet. We currently recommend using .

Installing RVM

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

curl -L dspr.tk/1t | bash

and follow the instructions.

Setting up RVM

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

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

Ensure the currently recommend version of Ruby is installed:

rvm install {{#var:variablename}}


Installing Bundler into the global gemset

rvm use {{#var:variablename}}@global
gem install bundler
