$ gem list qtruby4 -r

*** REMOTE GEMS ***

qtruby4 (1.4.9)

$ sudo gem install qtruby4
ERROR: could not find gem qtruby4 locally or in a repository

This flies in the face of my world model. I list a gem, it appears, I

try to install it, and it’s not there

Any clue would be appreciated!

No, qtruby4 works on other operating systems (I’m sure about linux, but
I
don’t know about Mac OS X). It’s the gem that’s only for windows. If you
want
to install it on Mac, you’ll have to compile it yourself, I fear. By the
way,
notice that the 1.4.9 version is a bit old. A new version (2.0.3) has
been
released last month.

Apparently the gem author didn’t bother to release a source-only gem.
Why not check the rubyforge project or homepage above.
