Installing ASCIIdoctor

Anthony Alvarez


Got inspiration to use Vagrant from a YouTube Video instead of "Ruby installer for Windows."

Have a question about installing ASCIIdoctor, which is a Ruby Gem, on a Vagrant box called "cargomedia/debian-7-amd64-default."
ASCIIdoc installation cannot complete due to file permissions.

Critical Vagrant Error message
vagrant@debian-7-amd64-default:~$ gem install asciidoctor
:  While executing gem ... (Errno::EACCES)
Permission denied - /var/lib/gems

  1. How to choose the best Vagrant box for ASCIIdoc installatio?
  2. What is vagrant super user password? Is it needed to install ASCIIdoc gem?
  3. Is Oracle VM VirtualBox installation separate from Vagrant? For example: if Vagrant is updated does VirtualBox automatically update or does VirtualBox have to be updated manually?
  4. How to change the vagrant name of "Default" to actual name of the vagrant box being used which is "cargomedia/debian-7-amd64-default?"

See screenshots

Software being used Versions

  • OS: Windows 10x64
  • GIT Bash terminal: GIT version
  • Vagrant: v2.0.0
  • Virtual Box: 5.1.14 r112924
Any suggestions and tips greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
