Getting LoadError when using ruby and gem


I m seeing below error when I m trying to run one of the application.

[ppok@xx23 HH]$ uname -a
Linux xx23.iky.knobb 2.6.18-92.el5 #1 SMP Tue Apr 29 13:16:12 EDT 2008
i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

[ppok@xx23 HH]]$ ruby --version;gem --version
ruby 1.8.5 (2006-08-25) [i386-linux]

from ./hh_main.rb:39

I understood from the error that one of the libraries (text/format) are
missing from the binary. Can anybody please help me in getting the
required libraries.

Best Regards,


Hi, Bela

Try this
gem list text-format

if nothing found, use
gem install text-format
