any ideas?


Update your gem to 1.3.1 (I recommend from source) and try from there.

I know that this link and tutorial is for Hardy, but you can follow
the gem install section pretty much verbatim (just grab the newest tar
from the site) and be good to go. I used it and am running Rails on
Ibex at home both on my web server and desktop.
