Problem with cron and a rails script

I’m trying to run a rails script using cron and I keep getting the
following
error:

/home/domains/lists.lanfusion.com/script/…/config/boot.rb:18:in
`require’:
no such file to load – rubygems (LoadError)
from
/home/domains/lists.lanfusion.com/script/…/config/boot.rb:18
from /home/domains/lists.lanfusion.com/script/runner:2

When I run the script from ssh it runs without a problem. I’ve tried the
following cron lines in the /etc/crontab file with the same results:

00 * * * * lanfusion ruby
/home/domains/lists.lanfusion.com/script/runmail
00 * * * * lanfusion /home/domains/lists.lanfusion.com/script/runmail
00 * * * * lanfusion /home/domains/lists.lanfusion.com/script/runner
‘load
“runmail”’
00 * * * * lanfusion cd /home/domains/lists.lanfusion.com/;ruby
script/runmail
00 * * * * lanfusion cd
/home/domains/lists.lanfusion.com/;script/runmail
00 * * * * root ruby /home/domains/lists.lanfusion.com/script/runmail
00 * * * * root /home/domains/lists.lanfusion.com/script/runmail
00 * * * * root /home/domains/lists.lanfusion.com/script/runner ‘load
“runmail”’
00 * * * * root cd /home/domains/lists.lanfusion.com/;ruby
script/runmail
00 * * * * root cd /home/domains/lists.lanfusion.com/;script/runmail

The runmail script is part of a mailing list application. Here’s the
code:

#!/usr/bin/env ruby
require ‘net/pop’
require File.dirname(FILE) + ‘/…/config/environment’

@lists = List.find(:all)

#loop through each list
@count = 0

while @count < @lists.length

@user = User.find(@lists[@count].user_id)
Net::POP3.start(@lists[@count].popserver, nil, @lists[@count].popuser,
@lists[@count].poppassword) do |pop|
pop.mails.each do |email|

  @the_mail = Processing.receive(email.pop)

  # processing of the mail

  Processing.deliver(@new_mail)

  email.delete

end

end

@count = @count + 1
end

The program itself was thrown together and willo be cleaned up after the
functionality is all in place.

Anyone have any ideas why I’m getting this error and what I can do about
it?
