You don't own the directories and the files and subdirectories in  
them. And you *better* do not change permissions like a bloody  
beginner with 'chmod -R 755.' (Of course, if you need some practise in  
installing Mac OS X just run 'sudo chmod -R 755!') The proper tool is  
Disk Utility (Festplatten-Dienstprogramm). If Ruby doesn't like the  
correct permissions it reestablishes, then remove it!
