Ok, so i've tried to install 1.8.6 in a few ways, the first was building\nit from source and most recently using macports. I've added the correct\nlines to both my /etc/profile and ~/.bash_login. Whenever I reload these\nfiles manually I get the correct version of ruby by issuing the version\ncommand. Can anyone help? I searched the forum for my question but had\ndifficulty finding an answer. Sorry if this has been asked a million\ntimes.
