Installing Gems


#1

Hi All

Getting stuck at the first step with gems. I guess a tough start but
hoping for a easy future.

So here I am.

I did install Gems in the separate /export directory of my Red Hat
system.

ruby setup.rb --prefix=/export --destdir=/export

Now trying to install rails and its dependencies I see this error.
Possibly becoz I am not installing it in the central area as I our
admin policies dont allow it do.

gem install rails
/export/bin/gem:8:in `require’: no such file to load – rubygems
(LoadError)
from /export/bin/gem:8

Thanks and excuse me if this sounds too silly :slight_smile:

You might need to tell ruby to look in that folder eg by passing ruby -
I/export/wherever/its/put/those/files

Hi Fred

Thanks for a quick reply. However I am unable to follow up. May be
becoz I am platform ignorant till now.

So you want me to pass the ruby -I/export/wherever/its/put/those/
files but where exactly ?

Thanks again for your patience.

I don’t know where those files got installed :slight_smile:
once you’ve worked out what the -I should be you can use RUBY_OPT
environment variable to have it added automatically if my memory is
correct.

The ENV variable is RUBYOPT.
