I am using two installation of Ruby 1.8.5 - one running natively under Windows, and one bundled with Cygwin. The Cygwin installation does not come with gem, so after I had installed gem 0.9.3 under Windows, I installed it within my Cygwin environment. Contrary to the installation under Windows, which issued an error message, but left me with a supposedly working "gem" (I have described this problem in a separate thread), the Cygwin installation of gem worked without errors, but the usage of the package does not seem to work: $ gem install net-ssh Bulk updating Gem source index for: http://gems.rubyforge.org ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::GemNotFoundException) Could not find net-ssh (> 0) in any repository So I wonder whether gem is intended to work at all under Cygwin. Anyone already tried this? BTW, here is my Cygwin gem environment: $ gem environment RubyGems Environment: - VERSION: 0.9.3 (0.9.3) - INSTALLATION DIRECTORY: /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8 - GEM PATH: - /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8 - REMOTE SOURCES: - http://gems.rubyforge.org

Of course I now wonder why the installation under pure Windows was able to locate the net-ssh package without having me specified the "-r" option.... (I actually never had used -r before in my gem installations). Ronald
