When reinstalling- or switching your ArchLinux you’ll need to re-setup you whole Ruby environment, otherwise it’s just NOT going to work. I’m using RVM for this, because I need to install a specific Ruby version (1.9.3) AND I have other projects too.
- Install Curl:
$ sudo pacman -S curl $ curl -L https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --ruby
- Now edit .bashrc:
$ nano .bashrc
Paste this at the end:
[[ -s "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" ]] && source "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm"
- Check requirements:
$ rvm requirements
Checking requirements for arch. Requirements installation successful.
- Install libyaml:
sudo pacman -S libyaml
- Login bash:
$ /bin/bash --login
- Now install the specific Ruby version of your needings:
$ rvm install ruby-1.9.3-p194
- Use default Ruby
$ rvm use 1.9.3-p194
- Install latest gems:
$ rvm rubygems latest
Fetch Octopress and reconfig
- Now it’s time to fetch your project:
$ git clone ssh://[email protected]/~/git/server.git/ (for example)
- Gem install bundler:
$ gem install bundler
- Now intstall the bundler by:
$ bundle install
The whole thing is now ready for use, you’ll just need to enter your emailaddress and name in Git for commiting
- Enter a name:
$ git config --global user.name "Techswag"
- Enter an emailaddress:
$ git config --global user.email "webm[email protected]"
$ rake generate $ git add . $ git commit -am "this is my first commit after reinstalling." $ git push
ArchLinux is using Python 3.x and this setup is using 2.x. It might be an issue when rake generate that your log is full of these warnings:

It’s a know issue on ArchLinux (conflict version of Python): https://github.com/tmm1/pygments.rb/issues/45
