I installed rvm, like you're supposed to do (apparently), avoiding apt-get to handle my ruby installations (as @btelles points out here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2225881/passenger-installation-with-nginx-fails)
However, I can only see rvm when I log in remotely via ssh. When I log in locally, there's no indication of rvm anywhere on the system. When I type into a terminal when logged in locally:
The result is nothing. When I run the same thing from the command line remotely via ssh, I get:
xxx@xxxx:~$ which rvm /usr/local/rvm/bin/rvm
What should I do to get ruby running from the local machine?
EDIT: started a bounty because I REALLY need this to be solved. Ubuntu should play nice with rvm in rvm's default installation, and the fact that it does not is extremely frustrating, to say the least.
