Gems timeout on the rubyforge repository

Hi,

I have downloaded and compiled both ruby and gems. I am now trying to
install rails with the following command:

sudo gem install rails --include-dependencies

and after a long delay, I get this message:

ERROR: While executing gem … (Errno::ETIMEDOUT)
Connection timed out - connect(2)

I have found references to various rubyforge mirrors, but I have been
unable to get these to work. How do you set up gems to use a mirror?

What mirrors work the best?

Could I have a bad configuration that is preventing me from connecting
to the rubyforge site with gem?

Thanks,
Ryan

Try again now. I just tried it and it works for me.
