Cannot build lesson on ubuntu 16.04 #553
I forked the lesson on github, cloned it locally. My machine runs ubuntu 16.04
If I try to build the site I get errors:
dan@bucky:~/git/git-novice$ make serve
A cursory look at the files navbar.html or base.html doesn't yield an obvious answer.
If I run the jekyll command with verbose option there's a little more info. Seems the error occurs with rendering lesson 2, whereas lesson 1 renders just fine:
dan@bucky:~/git/git-novice$ jekyll build --verbose
Thank you. I had to run this first, because the gem wouldn't install: $ sudo apt-get install ruby-dev After that the gem jekyll install was fine, and the git-novice site built fine. Note: ubuntu 16.04 uses jekyll 3.0.?, which is way out of date. Can I suggest adding some detail on preparing one's machine for building a site locally? Dan…
