The RVM executable is probably in that directory somewhere, almost

I don't know for sure if that works, though, so try that and see what
happens, if it works and you don't know how to add it to your $PATH,
reply and we'll do that. There may well be a more 'proper' way to do
this, but I'd expect it to be pretty clearly documented were that the
