I have gems 0.8.11 and I attempted gem update --system and got the
output below.
What do I need to do to make the update work?

Do I need to issue the command in the ruby home directory?

Thanks,
Wes

You need to post this to the Gems mailing list. While Rails makes
heavy use of Gems for distribution, Gems is not part of Rails.

You can find subscriber information, as well as a searchable archive,
for the gems-developers list at <http://rubyforge.org/mail/?

And please download and use it for installing Rails! This feature:

====================
The gem index is now downloaded incrementally, only updating entries
that are out of date. If more than 50 entries are out of date, we revert
back to a bulk download. ====================

will really help lighten the bandwidth load on RubyForge. And upgrading
is as simple as doing a “gem update --system”. Many thanks!

This was a problem with a corrupted rubygem and has been fixed. Please
try the command again…

Thanks,

Tom

Tom,

Thanks for the help. Looks good so far.

A bit OT for rails I know, but…

I’m having a quick problem with this new gem release, it cant seem to
find
any gems!? No matter what I give it to install, it just comes back with
GemNotFoundException. Any ideas?

Thanks!

My idea is that’s something’s broke :).

Seriously, FWIW, I am seeing the same thing. And I’m stuck, because I
just hosed my rails install.

I wonder if there’s a way to know if someone’s looking into it.

No problem, glad to hear it!

Tom,

Do you understand why none of the Rails related gems appear to be in the
repository anymore?

Hate to be a “me too”, but me too.

Updated rubygems, then did a sudo gem update and it came back saying
there was nothing to update.

Ahh… I just deleted the file
/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/source_cache and tried the update again.
It said it was “bulk updating” the index and now it’s pulling down the
Rails update.

It’s working, but that seems like a driving a screw with a
sledgehammer…

Ya, deleting the cache file worked for me too…one would think the
install/update would do that as needed, or perhaps have a more specific
error message. =\

Oh well…

I submitted a bug report on RubyGems asking for a better error message.

Hi,
I got excited and tried it on my win xp laptop

had a minor error but it seemed like installed ok.

but my existing gems were not listed, could not install or reinstall or
update any gems.

some apps which were not frozen did not work.

had a minor heart attack(Ok that was a exaggeration),

as a last step I had to re-install ruby and my gems again.

I can wait some more time for installing it along with ruby 1.8.5, when
it hits in august 15th, it is a holiday in India, our independence day

Same error here. Deleting source_cache (as mentioned before) helped.
Thanks!
