Hi, I've been experiencing some strange behavior with rubygems. Background: Solaris 10 x86 ruby 1.8.4 rubygems-0.9.2 I dont' have access to the default rubygems repository, so I'm trying to set one up in my user dir. I know about the poisoned gem index thing and I've removed all the old cache files... so I'm pretty sure that's not where the problem lies. Anyway, I setup my GEM_HOME environment variable, downloaded rubygems 0.9.2 and installed it in my home directory using: |$ ruby setup.rb config --prefix=/path/to/my/home $ ruby setup.rb setup $ ruby setup.rb install <output> Here's where it gets weird. At the end of the installation, it tells me: Successfully built RubyGem Name: sources Version: 0.0.1 File: sources-0.0.1.gem Removing old RubyGems RDoc and ri... Installing rubygems-0.8.11 ri... Installing rubygems-0.8.11 rdoc... As of RubyGems 0.8.0, library stubs are no longer needed. Searching $LOAD_PATH for stubs to optionally delete (may take a while)... ...done. No library stubs found. </output> What????? 0.8.11 Ok, so then I run [gem update --system] and I get: <output> Upgrading RubyGems... Attempting remote upgrade of rubygems-update Attempting remote installation of 'rubygems-update' Successfully installed rubygems-update-0.9.2 Updating version of RubyGems to 0.9.2 Installing RubyGems 0.9.2 ---> bin <--- bin ---> lib ---> lib/rbconfig <--- lib/rbconfig ---> lib/rubygems <--- lib/rubygems <--- lib ---> bin <--- bin ---> lib ---> lib/rbconfig <--- lib/rbconfig ---> lib/rubygems <--- lib/rubygems <--- lib rm -f InstalledFiles ---> bin mkdir -p /opt/csw/bin/ install gem /opt/csw/bin/ setup.rb:466:in `chmod': Not owner - /opt/csw/bin/gem (Errno::EPERM) from setup.rb:466:in `rm_f' from setup.rb:513:in `install' from setup.rb:1093:in `verbose_off' from setup.rb:512:in `install' from setup.rb:1200:in `install_files' from setup.rb:1199:in `install_files' from setup.rb:1179:in `install_dir_bin' from setup.rb:1328:in `traverse' from setup.rb:1345:in `dive_into' from setup.rb:1326:in `traverse' from setup.rb:1320:in `exec_task_traverse' from setup.rb:1315:in `exec_task_traverse' from setup.rb:1175:in `exec_install' from setup.rb:894:in `exec_install' from setup.rb:712:in `invoke' from setup.rb:681:in `invoke' from setup.rb:1359 RubyGems system software updated </output> Ok, this is bizarre. It's trying to update the system wide version of rubygems? What if I try running [/path/to/my/home/bin/gem update --system] ???? Same results as above. My GEM_HOME environment variable is set so???? running [gem env] shows me that my gem environment *seems* to be ok: - VERSION: 0.8.11 (0.8.11) - INSTALLATION DIRECTORY: /path/to/my/home/lib/ruby/gems - GEM PATH: - /path/to/my/home/lib/ruby/gems - REMOTE SOURCES: - http://gems.rubyforge.org I really need some help with this as I have no idea why rubygems are behaving this way.

Oddly enough, I don't see this information anywhere on the rubygems manual page: http://rubygems.org/read/chapter/3#page83

Otherwise nobody will remember to fix it.
