Problem in installing gems

Hi friends
I am trying to install the gems, but I am having the problem in
installing them.
the error is as follows:

ERROR: While executing gem…(Gem::InstallError)
invalid gem format for
C:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/cache/rspec-1.1.3.gem

Similarly when i tired to install englisg gem it said the error as
follows:

ERROR: While executing gem…(Gem::GemNotFoundException)
Could not find english-0.2.0(>0)in any repository

Please suggest what is this problem & how can I solve it?

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

Hey pranjal,
I think the u need to re-setup the ruby gems.
Once the setup is done please type gem in the command prompt and see
wether
“gem” is working or not…
If it works then the gem install english will also work.

I mean i tried to install some of the following gems

gem install colorize
gem install english-0.2.0
gem install rspec

each of the gem was giving errors.
Also I want to highlight that I am not using ruby on Rails Framework
I am using only “Ruby” as I am beginner on this scripting language.

Thanks for the reply:)

Are you behind a firewall?

#gem

RubyGems is a sophisticated package manager for Ruby. This is a
basic help message containing pointers to more information.

Usage:
  gem -h/--help
  gem -v/--version
  gem command [arguments...] [options...]

Examples:
  gem install rake
  gem list --local
  gem build package.gemspec
  gem help install

Further help:
  gem help commands            list all 'gem' commands
  gem help examples            show some examples of usage
  gem help platforms           show information about platforms
  gem help <COMMAND>           show help on COMMAND
                                 (e.g. 'gem help install')
Further information:
  http://rubygems.rubyforge.org

Hi there
Yes I am behind the firewall. But I dnt think it is an issue which is
constraining from installing.

Sorry, I meant proxy server. My fingers slipped.

Yes
I am behind the firewall as well as proxy server :frowning:

You will need to tell RubyGems about your proxy server. You can use
either the -p/–http-proxy option, or you can use the HTTP_PROXY
environment variable.
