Using RVM on Ubuntu 10.10

I wanted to use RVM for some testing with Ubuntu 10.10 last night.  Not one set of instructions I found around the web would work.  At the end of the day it was actually something rather simple; a path issue.

As the documentation clearly points out, you need to make a couple of modifications to your .bashrc script for things to work properly.

Here is what all the instructions say to past at the end:

[[ -s "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" ]] && . "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm"  # This loads RVM into a shell session.


Here is what you really have to paste at the end:

[[ -s "$HOME/.rvm/src/rvm/scripts/rvm" ]] && . "$HOME/.rvm/src/rvm/scripts/rvm"

                             ^^^^^                                                     ^^^^^

Notice the path differences.  I have no idea why this is the case but it is.  I had the same issue on previous Ubuntu version as well though.  Well, this cost me a little bit of time but once I made that change along with the other documented changes everything has been just peachy.
