I have no idea what to do any more. I develop a tiny web app with Ruby
on Rails, but when I try to update install rails on my root server
with “gem install rails” (or gem update), within seconds gem will
render the complete machine unusable, and it will finally crash due to
oom (out-of-memory) errors, according to the kernel log.
I have an ubuntu hardy server with ruby1.8 installed.
(rubygems_0.9.4-4_all.deb, according to dpkg)
any idea for a distressed person?
cheers & thanks,
