I've been through all tutorials and solved problems I can find about RVM. There's something wrong with permissions. There are no rubies installed, and when I try to install one: "permission denied". I can't even do rvm implode without "permission denied".

    apt-get messed it up, it forced a rvm_path to /usr/share, because I did it with sudo. Solution: sudo apt-get install ruby-rvm && sudo apt-get purge ruby-rvm – AV Ukkonen Jan 22 '12 at 21:17
