and sorry if this has been asked before - couldn’t find a good solution
for the following problem yet…
I can’t get some of my gems to work and I know there has been trouble
with this and Leopard before - but first things first:
I have ruby, rails and rubygems installed on my Mac, running 10.5.
Previously, I had troubles since for ruby was also installed via
MacPorts (I am sure I had a reason for that…) - so ruby is located
both in /usr/local/bin and /opt/local/bin.
‘which ruby’ shows that '/usr/local/bin is used, so that’s fine
‘gem environment’ shows
- RUBYGEMS VERSION: 1.1.1
- RUBY VERSION: 1.8.6 (2007-03-13 patchlevel 0) [universal-darwin8.0]
- INSTALLATION DIRECTORY: /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8
- RUBY EXECUTABLE: /usr/local/bin/ruby
and lo and behold, that’s were I find the gem that I can’t get to work.
However, if I run a script requiring that gem, it returns the following
gem_original_require': no such file to load -- ensembl-api (LoadError) from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:inrequire’
I am not too familier with the exact folder structure that ruby uses,
but something is fishy here regardless.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
