Hello, I try to get RedCloth installed on my Ubuntu Hardy machine. Naturally, I typed sudo gem install RedCloth but this brought the error: ERROR: Error installing RedCloth: echoe requires RubyGems version >= 1.2 However, gem update --system is disabled on Ubuntu, so I'm stuck with gem version 1.1.1. Any suggestions? Thanks, Michael

You can update RubyGems by installing the rubygems_update gem and running it by hand. $ sudo gem install rubygems_update $ sudo update_rubygems Be aware that you sidestep the package system by doing this, so it might lead to strange behaviour if a rubygems update is pushed on apt. But thats a thing a Linux-User should answer you ;). Regards, Florian G.
