Gem update --system, now my local gems are missing

hi,

I just did a “gem update --system” to 0.9.5, but now when I do “gem
list” I get nothing.

The gems are still there, I can “ls” them.

I seem to recall seeing other people have this issue, but I don’t recall
the fix. Nor is my googling turning up anything useful.

thanks

I think I see my problem,

my gems are in ‘/var/lib/gems/1.8/gems/’

but now gem is looking in ‘/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/’

so I exported GEM_HOME in my .bashrc to my place.

probably the real problem is that I’ve got a Debian that had rubygems
installed from package, but now I just ran roughshod over that
install…

Yup. Don’t do that. If you didn’t install RubyGems yourself, don’t
upgrade it yourself.
