OS X / gem install / problems

Did some heavy research / hacking but no luck - I built ruby 1.8.5 on my
little iBook [OS X 10.2.8] which went fine - I then went to install gem
but got:

[ommitted]
install user_interaction.rb /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems
install validator.rb /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems
install version.rb /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems
<— lib/rubygems
<— lib
Illegal instruction

[Note the ‘Illegal instruction’]

and if I try to run gems I get:

/usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:in
gem_original_require': no such file to load -- sources (LoadError) from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:inrequire’
from

from

from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:112:in
`manage_gems’
from /usr/local/bin/gem:10

Anyone got any thoughts? Thanks.

Remove rubygems from site_ruby and try again. Make sure you’ve got
zlib and openssl installed properly for building otherwise.

You may need to dig into what is actually causing the illegal
instruction.

Thanks for the response - but still no luck / ensure that openssl and
zlib are there. deleted site_ruby/rubygems but still getting the same
error.

?
