Gem Update Connection Error?

Hi:

I am getting the following error while trying to update my rubygems.

*** REMOTE GEMS ***
ERROR: While executing gem … (Errno::ETIMEDOUT)
Operation timed out - connect(2)

After searching I found out its some network problem … Is rubyforge
down, is that the only place gem repository?? I try to access
rubyforge.org but no luck!

Any help??

Cheers

According to the ruby list, rubyforge is currently down.

Thank you for your prompt reply.

However I find it very very wired that there is only one place where you
can
download your gems from with gem install tool. As for any other package
manager I worked with i.e. apt, rpm, yum you can always edit the
repository and there are more then 1 repository in the world also they
are available via all university ftp sites… either I don’t know much
about how gem works or it is completely wired that rubyforge.org having
a monopoly.

Sorry about the rant it just too damn frustrating…

Cheers

Yeah, we had a discussion on that in #rubyonrails today. Perhaps it’s
about time someone get up a rubyforge mirror or twenty. What does one
do to get such a thing done?

You can specify the source of a gem install:

gem install rails—source http://gems.rubyonrails.org
-—include-dependencies

For example, this will install rails 1.2 RC2 from rubyonrails.org
directly. Many gems are available directly from their own specific
sites, however I agree that rubyforge should be mirrored.

I think Apache principle is the best …

http://www.apache.org/info/how-to-mirror.html

Only 10GB of disk space is needed by doing quick scan of the document.
I am sure there are many on the list who would be more then willing to
do this plus there are bunch of universities who would set it up. And
I am also sure that many here are already connected to those folks
that are running the university mirrors.

I think the issue needs to be address in any way cos the rubyforge.org
is not enough to meet the growing number of ruby developers… as I see
from the railsinside.org blog ruby is now number 10 popular language
and moving up…

Cheers
