Gems problem

Hi all,

I cannot get gem install x to work at all.

[Spikefish:/Users/web] root# gem install rubyzip
Attempting local installation of ‘rubyzip’
Local gem file not found: rubyzip*.gem
Attempting remote installation of ‘rubyzip’

I’ve never had a problem previously, the only thing that may be
affecting it is that I’m currently checking out a large amount of
source files from a remote svn repo, but other network apps are fine
(web/mail/im/svn etc).

Any ideas? Is the gem server down?


That seems like a network problem, possibly from RubyForge. Can you
download the gem to your machine and install it locally?
