Problem installing RVM

Hi, I am running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, and wanted to install RVM today, I used:
bash < <( curl http://rvm.beginrescueend.com/releases/rvm-install-head )
(NOTE: I already have git-core and curl, etc.)

After running that command I get the output in terminal from Wayne,
and I added:
if [[ -s "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" ]] ; then source "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" ; fi
to .bashrc. I also replaced the return statement in .bashrc with the one recommended
on the RVM website.

After a system reboot, I tried to run rvm notes, and then a bunch of:
"No such file or directory" lines are printed.

I'm no Linux expert, but on closer inspection I found out that inside ~/.rvm/ there is only a "src" directory and not a "scripts" one as expected.

Did bash < <( curl http://rvm.beginrescueend.com/releases/rvm-install-head )
only download the source code? Is there some solution or next steps?

Please assist!
