Setup new Mac with OSX Lion from scratch
Install Command Line Tools for Xcode
Command Line Tools are required for Homebrew. Previously it was suggested to download Xcode 4, but since the new version doesn't ship the proper gcc compiler for rvm, the command line tools are a better option and then using homebrew to get the gcc compiler. If preferred, install Xcode 4, although this setup doesn't follow that set of instructions.
Really the nicest choice for a terminal on OSX right now, especially with Lion style full screen support.
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/gist/323731)"
Note that Xcode is a pre-req for Homebrew
Set shell to ZSH and install oh-my-zsh
curl -L https://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/raw/master/tools/install.sh | sh
brew install git
brew install mercurial
Copy over your SSH Keys from your existing machine if you have them and want to carry over your existing SSH configs.
\curl -L https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --ruby=rbx --gems=rails,puma
First make sure you run rvm requirements afterwards, and if required rvm reinstall all --force. Also note this command installs rails and puma. If you want plain Ruby use:
\curl -L https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --ruby
Some of instructions to pay attention to from rvm requirements:
Install of apple-gcc42
brew update brew tap homebrew/dupes brew install autoconf automake apple-gcc42 rvm pkg install openssl
Install Libksba for Ruby 1.9.3
brew install libksba
To use an RVM installed as default, instead of the system ruby:
rvm install 1.9.3 # installs patch 286: closest supported version rvm system ; rvm gemset export system.gems ; rvm 1.9.3 ; rvm gemset import system.gems # migrate your gems rvm alias create default 1.9.3 # don't forget to restart your terminal
[[ -s "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" ]] && . "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" # This loads RVM into a shell session.
Start new shell session
rvm install 1.9.2 rvm install 1.8.7 rvm notes
See if there is anything in the rvm notes you need to take action on. As of this writing the compiler needs to be overridden.
Create a ~/.gemrc file and add the line
gem: --no-ri --no-rdoc
rvm --default 1.8.7 rvmsudo gem install bundler rvmsudo gem install lunchy
From home (zsh may try to convert nvm to .nvm. Go nay):
git clone git://github.com/creationix/nvm.git ~/.nvm
[[ -s "$HOME/.nvm" ]] && . "$HOME/.nvm/nvm.sh"
nvm install v0.8.12 nvm alias default 0.8
Unlike RVM that adds the binary version of the node to .zshrc, you need to do it manually according to the version you are using. So for instance:
PATH=$PATH:$HOME/.nvm/v0.8.12/bin # Add NVM to PATH for scripting
npm (Latest version of Node already have npm included)
curl http://npmjs.org/install.sh | sh
gem install vagrant $ vagrant box add base http://files.vagrantup.com/lucid64.box $ vagrant init $ vagrant up
Download and unpack ievms:
Install IE versions 6, 7, 8 and 9.
curl -s https://raw.github.com/xdissent/ievms/master/ievms.sh | bash
Install specific IE versions (IE7 and IE9 only for example):
curl -s https://raw.github.com/xdissent/ievms/master/ievms.sh | IEVMS_VERSIONS="7 9" bash
Launch Virtual Box.
Choose ievms image from Virtual Box.
Install VirtualBox Guest Additions (pre-mounted as CD image in the VM).
IE6 only - Install network adapter drivers by opening the drivers CD image in the VM.
