Ruby 1.9.1 and 1.9.2 are not officially supported. If you encounter problems, please upgrade to Ruby 2.0 or 1.9.3.
Berkshelf will search in specific locations for a configuration file. In order:

$PWD/.berkshelf directory. A default configuration file is generated for you, but you can update the values to suit your needs.
