LoadError when installing RubyGems on Red Hat Linux

Hi,

I’m trying to install a RoR application in a Red Hat Linux
environment, when I was working in Windows up to now…

The Ruby installation was successful and I set the PATH to include the
directory containing the ruby executable. But when installing RubyGems
via “ruby setup.rb” (or “ruby setup.rb config”, depending on the
information source…), I get the following error message:

./lib/rubygems.rb:10:in require': no such file to load -- thread (LoadError) from ./lib/rubygems.rb:10 from setup.rb:22:inrequire’
from setup.rb:22

According to the little I found on the Internet, it seems to be caused
either by a missing ruby file/package or a missing path in my PATH
environment variable… But I’m stuck at this point.

Thanks for your help,

Chris.

Perhaps you need to add the --enable-pthread option to
the Ruby compile config.

Thanks for the suggestion. I was able to install RubyGems successfully
by following the instructions from the following blog post:

http://betweengo.com/ruby-on-rails/2008/03/28/installing-ruby-on-rails-on-red-hat-enterprise-linux-4/

For some reason, the previous installation didn’t update the PATH
environment variable, among other things surely… So I suspect there
was something wrong with my Ruby installation in the first place.

Cheers,

Chris.
