Another newbie here.
First off, thank you very much to the project owners and all contributors for all the hard work.
I was going through WebDev 101 on my Fedora 28.
The installation process was a bit painful because the Linux instruction focuses on Debian based distros.
Elsewhere, I read someone recommending to install it using the usual method for the OS. (i.e.
apt-get, yum, dnf, etc) which would also help with updates. I think it would also be a great help for new people like me. I am wondering why the RVM method was chosen, and would be grateful if someone could explain the advantage of choosing it.
While here, may I suggest an edit?
On Fedora, (Also Redhat, CentOS, etc) the following command should help install the dependencies.
sudo yum install curl nodejs gcc make openssl-devel readline-devel zlib-devel sqlite-devel
dnf for newer versions of Fedora.
Tip for fellow newbies
Read the error message. Usually, it tells you what is missing, and how to install it.
