I’m just getting started with rails. I’m trying to install it
on a CentOS 4.2 (i.e. Red Hat Enterprise 4.2) x86_64 system.
The OS install is brand new. Ruby version is:
ruby 1.8.1 (2003-12-25) [x86_64-linux-gnu]
When I attempt to install rails, I get this:
gem install rails --include-dependencies
Attempting local installation of ‘rails’
Local gem file not found: rails*.gem
Attempting remote installation of ‘rails’
Updating Gem source index for: http://gems.rubyforge.org
ERROR: While executing gem … (Zlib::GzipFile::CRCError)
invalid compressed data – crc error
In searching list archives, etc, someone suggested it might
be an issue with i386 vs x86_64 zlib, but the presence of
the i386 zlib (and it’s -devel package) makes no difference
in the error generated.
Also, pulling down the .gem file and trying a local install
produces the same error. :-p
So… what am I doing wrong here? Or what package am I
missing? Any help would be much appreciated!
