"gem list" and "sudo gem list" yield different results

Hey there,

“sudo gem list” shows all my gems, while
“gem list” shows no gems.

As a result, I have to start mongrel with “sudo script/server”, because
without sudo, it can’t find my gems.

Any clues? Is this a permissions thing?

I’m doing this on a centos server.

Sounds to me that you have more than one Ruby/RubyGems installation.
You might want to compare the results of typing:

gem environment

with the results of typing:

sudo gem environment

Hope this helps,

Lyle

do “which gem”
and “sudo which gem”

I’m guessing they’re different

Wow!, you were absolutely right!
