redcar install doesn't play nice with rvm

Reported by Sidu Ponnappa | September 21st, 2010 @ 10:18 AM

When using rvm, doing a redcar install installs redcar only within that rvm environment. Switching to a different context makes redcar inaccessible.

    You solve it like this:

    # install redcar
    rvm use ruby@gemset
    gem install redcar
    redcar install
    # create wrapper
    rvm wrapper ruby@gemset wrapped redcar
    # alias wrapper to redcar
    echo -e '\nalias redcar=wrapped_redcar' >> ~/.bashrc
    . ~/.bashrc

    I don't think Redcar should be concerned with how it is made (in-)accessible by installing it with rvm. Konstantin's suggestion works, and is RVM's way of dealing with just this problem.
