I'm interested in trying out Radiant, but have a problem when
installing it with Ruby Gems -

philip$ gem install --include-dependencies radiant
ERROR:  While executing gem ... (Errno::EACCES)
     Permission denied - /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/cache/

Looking in this directory, the file doesn't exist. Instead I seem to
have a newer version -

How do I get around this? Install from the Tar instead?

If you're installing on a shared host, you probably won't be able to
install a gem.  Ask your provider to install it for you or seek out
information on how to install gems in your home directory.  If it's your
own personal machine, put 'sudo' in front of that command.

Ah, sudo did the trick. Seems obvious really. Thanks!
