CentOS + VirtualBox + Ruby on Rails

Februar 7, 2009

Just some noticable Infos:

I installed VirtualBox (virtualbox.org) and setup CentOS, for this i downloaded the complete image at http://virtualbox.wordpress.com/images/centos/ (remember to copy the root password for the first login)

To start setup:
– change root password
– add an additional user
– update system files (yum update)
– install mysql (to use with ruby mysql gem you need to install also the developer packages)
– install ruby-enterprise (setup .bashrc)
– install subversion (yum install subversion)

Some useful infos:

Install Ruby Enterprise (including Rails):
Installing Ruby Enterprise on CentOS 5.2

Install MySQL Gem
Faild for me, so i found here the solution:
mysql gem on centos
Update: More Infos: Mysql gem centos5 hell

German Keyboard Layout
To change temporary (until reboot)
loadkeys de-latin1
And to verify that the keyboard layout is correct use the command: showkey

Permanent setting (CentOS):
Edit /etc/sysconfig/keyboard and replace KEYTABLE=“us“ by KEYTABLE=“de-latin1″
save and reboot.

To find whitch keyboard layout maps that is available is in the map
/lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/…depending on which distro is used.

Enable high resolution console:
As root, edit the file ‚/etc/grub.conf‘, and add ‚vga=XXX‘ to the line that begins with kernel.
Get other values here: VGA Screen Resolution

I will update this post, but for now i dont remember more steps 😉
