'gem list --remote' is blank?

When running ‘gem list --remote’ on our linux and mac machines, we get a
huge list of available gems, but when doing the same on a windows laptop
in the office, we just get…

*** REMOTE GEMS ***

Bulk updating Gem source index for: http://gems.rubyforge.org/

and then after a long while, it returns to the command line without
listing any gems.

Does anybody have a clue what’s going on? The laptop is on the network,
and we can browse to http://gems.rugyforge.org/ just fine.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If that was intended to be a helpful suggestion, I’m afraid I don’t
understand what you’re trying to say.

It was a very droll (or troll?) joke :slight_smile:

For me on windows, this list populates normally. Could it be a firewall
issue? Windows blocking outgoing traffic?

Thanks, That’s was a good idea. I disabled the firewall and tried again,
but got the same results. We’ve never had problems updating gems on
this machine before.

I have a similar problem. I think it’s a firewall/proxy thing.
Googling “ruby gem firewall” gives a bunch of promising results about
workarounds, but I haven’t tried any yet. I usually just download
through my browser then do a gem install -l.

Thanks for the suggestion. I disabled the firewall and we’re not behind
a proxy, so I don’ think that’s the problem here.

Ok, it seems to be the issue was the version of ruby. That machine
(rarely used) was still on 1.8.5. Updated it to 1.8.6 and gems seems to
be installing fine now.
