Exception - not sure how to fix

I am running ruby 1.8.7 and rails 3.0.7 on a MacPro.

When I run a command - something as simple as ‘gem list --local’ I get a
stack trace in the terminal.

The stack trace mentions deprecation and that something will be removed,
but the exception happens every-time I issue a command?!

Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

It’s warning you that the gemspec files inside some of your gems are
using a soon to deprecated option. Remove older versions of gems
should make the warnings go away (assuming that the newer versions
have no longer use the option in question)

Hi Fred!

Thanks for your help.

This is the first time I’ve run into this. After a quick search I found
I can run a ‘cleanup’ to remove old gems.

The problem is that I notice a dependency issue.

It looks like I should not remove some gems that are causing this issue.
Do others just live with the annoying messages about deprecation?

You have requested to uninstall the gem:
builder-2.1.2
actionpack-3.0.7 depends on [builder (~> 2.1.2)]
activemodel-3.0.7 depends on [builder (~> 2.1.2)]
rubygems-update-1.8.2 depends on [builder (~> 2.1)]
tilt-1.3 depends on [builder (>= 0)]
If you remove this gems, one or more dependencies will not be met.
Continue with Uninstall? [Yn]

Yes, you’ll get a few dependency warnings when you run ‘gem cleanup’.
If A depends on B, and it is trying to remove B, then it’ll warn you
that A will stop working.

But chances are that A is going to be removed later on in the clean-up
anyway. As long as A isn’t a version that you intend to keep, it’s
okay to let it remove the dependency.

Just read the message and do a quick mental sanity check. You can
always reinstall a gem later if it gets removed by mistake.

It looks like I should not remove some gems that are causing this issue.

The annoying messages about deprecation are a recent introduction:

http://blog.zenspider.com/2011/05/rubygems-18-is-coming.html

We’re all still learning how to live with them (or, more productively,
trying to get gems updated to not use the deprecated APIs).
