Ruby on Rails
For those who are trying to install Ruby on Rails on Debian(in my case 3.1 STABLE), you will notice that your application will show a blank page and the following error on the WEBrick web server in dev/development.log:
MissingSourceFile (no such file to load -- irb):
You must install the following packages:
apt-get install ruby1.8-dev
apt-get install irb
apt-get install libncurses5-dev libreadline5-dev

    Hmm, you should fill in a bug report, since this is obviously a problem with dependences...

    No, is not a bug.
    It's just a dependencies problem.
