Another wierd error whilst installing gems?


what could cause this error in terminal when updating gems?

Bulk updating Gem source index for:
ERROR: While executing gem … (Errno::EACCES)
Permission denied -
[marcrice:~] marcrice%

please help!

Well, going by the “permission denied” message I’d guess that you don’t
have the access rights to the directory. On my Linux box, at least, I
have to have root authority to modify anything in /usr. Perhaps you need
to log on as root or use sudo when you execute the gem command?
