I'm trying to install RoR to match the versions used in the Learning Rails 3 book: ruby 1.9.2 and rails 3.2.3. On advice from stackoverflow I created a gemset as follows:
1. rvm use 1.9.2
2. rvm gemset create rails3.2.3
3. rvm firstname.lastname@example.org
4. gem install rails --version=3.2.3
...this runs, but afterwards when I run "rails -v" I get the complaint "Could not find 'railties'". In other words, the installation is incomplete. Does anyone know a better way of installing these two versions?

Chris, that's not quite my problem. If you follow the books instructions, it does a straightforward install, which means that it uses the latest version of Rails (4.0.2). The book is based on 3.2.3. As the book itself warns, problems can arise when you try their coding exercises/samples with the 'wrong' version of RoR. It appears to be rather tricky to go against the grain and install an older version of Rails.
