How do I work around a 'can't activate gem xxx version 1.2.3, because gem xxx version 2.3.4 is alrea

How can i work around this error? Is it possible to force ruport to use
1.5.0?

can’t activate fastercsv (= 1.2.3, runtime) for [“ruport-1.6.1”],
already activated fastercsv-1.5.0 for [] (Gem::LoadError)

Thanks,
reid

that latter “for []” doesn’t help, or it is (poorly) stating that YOU
activated fastercsv. I’m gonna guess the latter. So, either activate
it with a version specifier that matches:

gem ‘fastercsv’, ‘= 1.2.3’

or activate ruport before you require fastercsv.

We really need to stop using ‘= x.y.z’ because of problems like this.
In this case tho, it looks like ruport is falling behind on
maintenance (or you’re using an old version, which is another way for
you to fix this if so)

Thanks for your response.

This was ruport installed today via gem - so should be the latest
version.
How do I activate ruport before requiring fastercsv, is it simply
requiring
ruport before fastercsv, or is there more involved?

I would hope that ruport would work with fastercsv >=1.2.3 w/o issue and
that
there would be a simple way to make it do so???

require ‘ruport’ before require ‘fastercsv’ should be sufficient.

$ gem dep -r ruport
Gem ruport-1.6.1
fastercsv (= 1.2.3, runtime)
pdf-writer (= 1.1.8, runtime)

[…]
$ gem list -r fastercsv

fastercsv (1.5.0)

Looks like it’s locked down, it should probably be ‘~> 1.2’ or similar
instead. Greg?

Yeah, I think that’d be fine. Actually, Ruport should work with
basically “Any fastercsv”, I just haven’t gotten around to fixing and
releasing.
It was a mistake to lock this way in the first place.
