I've been following the cookbook directions on the rubyonrails site but when I come to the install step; gem install rails --include-dependencies I get the message; Local gem file not found: rails*.gem It then goes and trys a remote install from rubyforge which never works even when I shut all my network secrutiy down. I did a search on rails*.gem and all I found was; rails-1.1.2.gem It is in a rails subfolder I put inside the ruby folder. (There doesn't seem to be a gems folder.) Why can't gems find it? Thanks, -Rhe.

OK, more information. When ruby installed, it created its path entry wrong. It failed to put the ; at the end. I fixed that and found that if I CD to the ruby\bin folder and put in the entire path leading to the rails files then the gem command is able to find it. Next problem; I get the error message "rails requires rake >= 0.7.1". Now, I just downloaded fresh everything. I couldn't possibly have an old rake. I'm thinking it's a path issue again. What combination of directory structures and path commands do I have to have to get all this stuff to string together properly?

Hey Russell, what platform are you trying to install on? Windows XP or Mac OS X or Linux? However, I'm guessing that you're on a Windows related platform from your previous e-mail. This information would assist us in helping you. Thanks in advance, -Conrad

Thanks Conrad. Yes, it's Windoes XP. The more I look at this I think I need a good directory structure plan and a matching path command. Otherwise I'm probably going to have issues from now on out. Any advice? -Rhe. Conrad T. wrote: > Hey Russell, what platform are you trying to install on?
