ANN: RubyGems 0.9.2

= Announce: RubyGems Release 0.9.2

Release 0.9.2 is a maintenance release of RubyGems that fix some minor
bugs in the 0.9.1 release.

Bug Fixes Include:

  • The “unpack” command now works properly.
  • User name and password are now passed properly to the authenticating
    proxy when downloading gems.

== What is RubyGems?

RubyGems is a package management system for Ruby applications and
libraries. RubyGems one command download makes installing Ruby software
fun and enjoyable again. (Ok, not really.)

Many gems are available for download from the RubyForge site. Browse
the list of gems with a “gem list --remote” command and download what
you need with a simple "gem install ". RubyGems takes care
of the details of installing, not only the gem you requested, but also
any gems needed by the software you selected.

== RubyGems Statistics

  • About 1300 different gems are available from RubyForge
  • Over 500 thousand downloads of the RubyGems software
  • Over 8.5 million gem downloads

If you are interested in finding out when new gems are released, I
maintain an RSS feed at http://onestepback.org/gemwatch.rss.

== How can I get RubyGems?

If you have a recent version of RubyGems (0.8.5 or later), then all
you need to do is:

$ gem update --system (you might need to be admin/root)

(Note: You may have to run the command twice if you have any previosly
installed rubygems-update gems).

If you have an older version of RubyGems installed, then you can still
do it in two steps:

$ gem install rubygems-update (again, might need to be admin/root)
$ update_rubygems (… here too)

If you don’t have any gems install, there is still the pre-gem
approach to getting software … doing it manually:

  1. DOWNLOAD FROM: http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=126
  2. UNPACK INTO A DIRECTORY AND CD THERE
  3. INSTALL WITH: ruby setup.rb all (you may need admin/root privilege)

== What’s Next

The next big thing on the plate is to integrate the local/remote gem
logic and make the whole thing more consistent.

== Thanks

Major contributors to this release include:

  • Anatol P.

Keep those gems coming!

Small matter, but when I installed using gem update I got this output:

Updating RubyGems…

ARGH!!! ruby-forum ate my words!

That was:
The second time I deleted the source_cache files, all worked as
planned… please forgive yet another spam message.

I’m having problems with installing any gems after installing RubyGems
0.9.2

I just built a fresh virtual machine installation of Ubuntu 6.10,
compiled ruby from source, had problems with setting up rubygems,
seperate built and installed the zlib stuff, then actually finally
managed to get rubygems 0.9.2 installed.

I now am getting this error, for any gem I try to install:

ERROR: While executing gem … (Gem::GemNotFoundException)
Could not find (> 0) in any repository

I’ve looked around for solutions to this problem, several pages said to
delete the source_cache file… I have done so.

Any further suggestions on what I can do?

Could you do sudo gem install rails --backtrace and paste the output?

Thanks,

I think I figured out the problem… User Error!
I’m using DarwinPorts (or MacPorts) and just realized I had RubyGems
0.8.11 on this systems instead of 0.9.0 as my Debian box has.
I’m trying to reinstall the latest from MacPorts now (0.9.1) then I’ll
try the update again.
I’ll go ahead and try it on debian as well since everything should
work as expected with the proper versions.

Not sure how this machine got stuck at 0.8.11? I thought I had updated
it.

If I run into the problem again, I’ll post the backtrace

Thanks

Thanks Eric, this was important for me.
