Can't install rubygems

The rubygems installer can’t finish, and CPU is 100% used in several
hours.

I have tested rubygems-0.8.11, 0.9.0 and 0.9.1.

Did you have a RubyGems already installed before starting the upgrade?

Could you try removing /usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems and re-
running setup?

None of those lines match up with 0.9.1’s package.rb.

I have removed it, and run setup again:

Can you check your sources gem’s MD5?

$ md5 pkgs/sources/sources-0.0.1.gem
MD5 (pkgs/sources/sources-0.0.1.gem) = 5e0ab904499bb982a6ef62fe3af0a291

Is what I get.

If that matches, can you try this script:

Thank you very much.

Is this a RubyGems problem or a Gentoo/Portage problem? There’s an open
bug in Gentoo Bugzilla for the rubygems-0.9.1 version bump – it can be
found at

https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=162463

You need to list the package in /etc/portage/package.unmask, I think. I
got it to work on all of my Gentoo boxes.

-O3 could also be a problem. I forget whether the Gentoo default
includes “-fomit-frame-pointer” or not, but the default is definitely
-O2 and not -O3.

I have removed -formit-frame-pointer and changed -O3 to -O2, then
re-emerge ruby and rubygems, but nothing changes.

I have tried all ways that I can think of, reinstall system, set
system date to 2006-12-25, … Does the installer use network? my
network is very bad in these days. perhaps network has caused it.

I’ve forgotten – what was the symptom again?

Maybe you should post a bug on Gentoo’s Bugzilla
(http://bugs.gentoo.org). rubygems “stable” is still 0.9.0-r2, so you
might have hit a bug in their ebuild. They’ll at least help you diagnose
this. If you want, copy me off-list when you file the bug.

Maybe. These errors I’ve never seen:

localhost distfiles # gem install activesupport
Attempting local installation of ‘activesupport’
ERROR: Error installing gem activesupport[.gem]: string contains

localhost distfiles # gem install RedCloth-3.0.4.gem
Attempting local installation of ‘RedCloth-3.0.4.gem’
ERROR: Error installing gem RedCloth-3.0.4.gem[.gem]: string

and should only come from a very confused ruby, or buggy C
extensions. The C extensions built in to ruby shouldn’t have bugs
this bad.

gems / ruby is broken on gentoo!
pity that. gentoo people on their forums say its not a portage error
but a strange error in combination glibc-2.3 autoconf-2.61 and ruby.
on the other hand gentoo users have no problem in installing ruby +
gems by hand.
