Hi all,

I already sent this to the Rails list, but I figure someone here might
how to troubleshoot this.

Apparently rails didn't install correctly on my Mandrake 10.0 system.
[slitt@mydesk work]$ rails demo
Could not find RubyGem rails (> 0) (Gem::LoadError)
        from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:141:in
        from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:37:in
        from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:31:in
        from /usr/bin/rails:17
[slitt@mydesk work]$

What is "RubyGem rails (> 0)"?

I installed rails with this command as root:

gem install rails --include-dependencies

It errored out (can't remember what it didn't find) so I ran it again
and it
said it installed successfully.

My Mandrake 10.0 came with Ruby 1.8.1 which is insufficient for rails,
so I
installed ruby 1.8.4 in /usr/local/bin, and then renamed the ruby in
to ruby.1.8.1, and then set up a symlink from /usr/bin/ruby
to /usr/local/bin/ruby. At that point, running Ruby brought up 1.8.4.

I have no idea what the error message meant by "RubyGem rails (> 0)".
anyone give me some hints on how to troubleshoot this?
