If the platform of the computer downloading the gems does not match the platform of the computer installing the gems (linux download, windows install) you may need to override it.Monday, 31 August 2009 • Permalink These are instructions for compiling and installing 64-bit Ruby, Rubygems, and Ruby on Rails on Mac OS X 10.6, Snow Leopard.If you want, you can delete this folder when you’re done, but keeping it around makes it easier to re-install (or uninstall) these apps later.
The benefits of manually building a copy of Ruby in variable determines where your system searches for command-line programs.
You’ll need to set it so that it can find the new apps you’re about to install.
Gem Command Version Output: So I figured that maybe if I cleaned up the previous installs of rubygems-update that it would resolve the issue.
I cleaned up the previous versions by issuing the “gem cleanup” command which did remove the previous versions of the rubygems-update gem however the gem command still output version 1.1.1.
I tried all sorts of other methods such as updating rubygems-update to version 1.2.0, verifying the permissions of the gem application file, and a bunch of other stuff but none of it worked.
Finally I decided to update from the rubygems source which did resolve the problem.
Once you’ve updated the Rails gems, the only remaining step to upgrading your individual Rails applications (Version 0.14.0 and later) is to get the latest Java Script libraries.
I’ve installed rubygems manually (no package manager) in my home directory.
You will need to use the following instructions if you see "Nothing to update". Install with: ruby # you may need admin/root privilege For more details and other options, see: ruby --help Changes: ### 1.3.7 / 2010-05-13 NOTE: now the default source for downloading gems.
If you have an older version of Ruby Gems installed, then you can still do it in two steps: $ gem install rubygems-update # again, might need to be admin/root $ update_rubygems # ... You may have sources set via ~/.gemrc, so you should replace continue to work for the forseeable future. * `gem query` and friends output now lists platforms. * `gem server` now allows specification of multiple gem dirs for documentation.
Announcement (2017-05-07): now read-only since I unfortunately do not have the time to support and maintain the forum any more. * Gem:: Package Task depends on the package dir like the other rake package tasks so dependencies can be hooked up correctly. It turned out that rdoc_osx_dictionary, with its rubygems plugin, was what was killing my gems, rdoc, and the whole bit.
