Problem in Installing Rails

Hi,
I am new to both ruby and rails.
I was trying to install rails on My FC5 machine but it didn’t succeed…

I have successfully installed latest version of Ruby on my machine, and
Gems too…
When I use command
“gem install rails --include-dependencies”
I get following error…

"ERROR: While executing gem … (SocketError)
getaddrinfo: Temporary failure in name resolution "

Can anybody solve my problem as early as possible???

Thanks & Regards,

the problem could be that your box is behind a restrictive firewall.
you can install rails by hand. without using the gem paket manager.

try this link:

it descripes how to install rails manually. is targeted to windows but
the gems should be the same. :wink:

google a bit around. there are a lot of results searching for “ERROR:
While executing gem … (SocketError)” e.g.
