Problem installing rubygems in Vista/cygwin


#1

Hello, folks.

I’m experiencing some trouble trying to install rubygems-1.3.0 on
Windows Vista (under cygwin). The same problem occurs when I try to
instal 1.2.0. Here’s what happens:

$ ruby setup.rb
mkdir -p /usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8
mkdir -p /usr/bin
install -c -m 0644 rbconfig/datadir.rb
/usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rbconfig/datadir.rb
(… lots of install commands …)
install -c -m 0644 ubygems.rb /usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/ubygems.rb
cp gem /cygdrive/c/Users/Pazu/AppData/Local/Temp/gem
rm /cygdrive/c/Users/Pazu/AppData/Local/Temp/gem
setup.rb:185:in initialize': Permission denied - /cygdrive/c/Users/Pazu/AppData/Local/Temp/gem (Errno::EACCES) from setup.rb:185:inopen’
from setup.rb:185
from setup.rb:170:in each' from setup.rb:170 from setup.rb:165:inchdir’
from setup.rb:165

I’ve tried disabling UAC, but the results are the same. I’ve checked
permissions for the Temp directory, and it’s definitely writable. I’m at
a lost about what to try next, any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Whatever the problem was, seems to be fixed in trunk. I’ve downloaded
the most recent rubygems code from subversion, and it installed OK.
