  • It forces an installation and use of ruby 2.0.0, but rails requires version >= 2.2.2 (this is in the output: ERROR: Error installing rails: activesupport requires Ruby version >= 2.2.2.)
  • It requires bundle to be installed but doesn’t install it (or mention it in the documentation)

I was following instructions here: discourse/DEVELOPMENT-OSX-NATIVE.md at master · discourse/discourse · GitHub

And as a side note, I still haven’t managed to install discourse.
