Thanks for the information but it still doesn’t work.
Is there a reason you’re trying a local install rather than directly
over the net ?
When I try to do the update over the net, it just hangs (over 4 hours).
I get the following information:
Attempting local installation of ‘rails’
Local gem file not found: rails*.gem
Attempting remote installation of ‘rails’
If it’s a proxy issue, set the environment variable HTTP_PROXY and gem
install will work.
I’m sure its not a proxy issue since I can do all other types of updates
over the internet, such as Eclipse plug-ins. I have also disabled Zone
Alarm while trying to do the update. But can I look somewhere to
You can check what version of what gems you have installed by using ‘gem
list’. Rails has a few dependencies and downloading them all will be a
pain, so doing an online install will be easier.
I have the following gems installed but is there some way to find the
version of activesupport? If I do have to manually download everything
to get the install to work, thats ok. The pain would be bearable as
long as I can get Rails working
*** LOCAL GEMS ***
Graphical interface to the RI documentation, with search engine.
fxruby (1.4.6, 1.2.6)
FXRuby is the Ruby binding to the FOX GUI toolkit.
Ruby based make-like utility.
This package provides download sources for remote gem installation
Thanks again A.
