I there any way to install this * not using rvm? I've got rails 3.2.3 gem installed but terminal can't found binary.

If You tell me to use rvm - please show me some WORKING (step by step) tutorial!

Sorry, for my anger but i spend week trying to set it fast and easy as it was on rails 2, but i found lots of not working tutorials with rvm.

If you install the ruby1.9.1-dev package (which, confusingly, is ruby 1.9.3.. ) then

gem1.9.1 install rails

As root, then rails will be fully built and installed as /usr/local/bin/rails

$ rails --version
Rails 3.2.3
