[ANN] Rails 2.0.2: Some new defaults and a few fixes

Now that we have the big Rails 2.0 release out the door, it’s a lot
easier to push out smaller updates more frequently. So that’s what
we’re going to do. Rails 2.0.2 contains a bunch of smaller fixes to
various bugs, no show-stopping action, just further polish. But it
also contains a few new defaults:

Hello Andy,

I can confirm it:

~ $ sudo gem update -y
[sudo] password for armin:
Updating installed gems…
Attempting remote update of actionmailer
Select which gem to install for your platform (i486-linux)

  1. activesupport 2.0.2 ()
  2. Skip this gem
  3. Cancel installation

1
ERROR: While executing gem … (OpenURI::HTTPError)
404 Not Found
~ $

I have also no idea what is meant by the 1st platform. I mean the
empty brackets.

referencing previous post on RoR 2.0.2

this worked for me…

sudo gem update --source http://gems.rubyonrails.org

looks like rubyforge is just lagging behind on the file update

also, this has only work when the gems version is 0.9.5

The most important thing to do is “gem update --system”.
Then “gem update rails” worked for me.

Be very when doing a “gem update --system” if you installed with
MacPorts. I’m not sure why but this completely hosed my rubygems and I
wound up going back to ruby source and installing a fresh version of
Ruby, rubygems, and all the gems. It was quicker than figuring out
what was wrong (and what the heck else did I have to do with my time,
right?).

If you do decide to “gem update --system”, and you installed with
MacPorts, at least take a snapshot of /opt/local/lib/ruby (or wherever
you had port install your Ruby) so you can rollback if something gets
toasted. Note that Eric H. said (on ruby-talk) “if you didn’t build
it, don’t update it.” Caveat updater.

Sorry guys Maredit messes up my post sometimes. Here is the working
