Install latest JRuby/Rails on Debian

The Debian stable distribution (“squeeze”) includes JRuby 1.5.1, which is old.

This is how I installed the latest JRuby:

sudo apt-get install curl
curl -L https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable
rvm install jruby
rvm use jruby
jruby —S gem install rails

    Works just as well on Ubuntu, OSX 10.8 and Bodhi Linux. I also use RVM for the latest ruby – OSX native ruby, for example, is still 1.8

      Good to know. Thanks, Brett! :)
