I used InstantRails 2.0 to install RoR on Win XP SP3. It brought rails
2.0.2 and I am having problems updating to rails 2.2.2
After initial installation I run “gem update—system” w/o a problem.
However the subsequent “gem update rails” results in
ERROR: While executing gem … (Gem::InstallError) rails requires
activesupport (= 2.2.2, runtime)
Trying to manually update activesupport by “gem update activesupport”
ERROR: While executing gem … (Gem::GemNotFoundException) could not
find gem activesupport locally or in a repository
Other variations (“gem install rails—version 2.2.2”, “gem install
activesupport”, etc.) produce same errors.
A few more data points that may be helpful
“gem -v” returns 1.3.1.
“gem sources” outputs “http://gems.rubyforge.org/” and
“gem list—remote” output does include “activesupport (2.2.2)”
Any suggestions on how to resolve or at least debug the issue? I am a
relative novice and am lost.
