I got a new iMac for Easter (yay!) because my MacBook Pro unexpectedly gave up the ghost (boo!). Here’s a recap of my foray back to productivity.
Grab the 200 MB build over the full Xcode install.
$> ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/mxcl/homebrew/go)" $> brew doctor # fix issues until "raring to brew"
$> brew install git bash bash-completion
Favor rbenv over rvm
$> brew install rbenv ruby-build $> echo 'eval "$(rbenv init -)"' >> ~/.bash_profile
Latest v1.9 for global use
$> rbenv install 1.9.3-p392 $> rbenv global 1.9.3-p392
Edge 2.0 for edge projects
$> rbenv install 2.0.0-p0
What setup would be complete without a few tribbles?
Multiple steps to allow
wheel group to access the root directory.
First, use Disk Utility to repair disk permissions, then enable the root user, so we can finally
su to execute:
#> chmod g+x /
Add locale to our bash profile
$> echo 'LANG="en_US.UTF-8"' >> ~/.bash_profile
