I'm using gem version 1.1.1. I'm trying to update some gems I have. I do "gem update gem_name" and gem is stuck on: Bulk updating Gem source index for: http://gems.rubyforge.org/ It takes ages and trashes my swap space. I have only a limited amount of memory (256 MB) and it seems that's the bottleneck. I remember having this problem before, in the days of gem 0.9. Upgrading to 1.1.1 solved the problem, but I now see that the problem hasn't completely gone. Is there a workaround for this?
