Gem Update Problems

Hello all,

I’m having problems using gem. I’m on Ubuntu Feisty, and when I try
running ‘gem update’, it states “Bulk updating gem source index
http://gems.rubyforge.org” and hangs there forever. Any idea what the
problem is?

Thanks in advance!!! – BTR

Have you also tried installing any gems, If so have they install ok?

Tried re-installing gems also?

Hi Lee,

Thanks for responding. I’ve waited upwards to an hour while watching it
before just going to bed and checking it out the next morning. When I
try to install a new gem it does the same thing. I first installed gem
via apt-get, but then I removed that (v 0.9.0) and installed 0.9.4 from
source.

Thanks! – BTR

How much memory do you have?

No, it takes about 120MB of RAM for a full index update.
