Problem with gems command

Hello,

Please forgive me if this is the wrong place for my question, but I just
started playing with this great tool and seem to have hit a brick wall.

I set rails up and then ran a “gem search -r generator” to check for new
stuff to test with and all I get is this error:

[[email protected] rubygems]# gem search -r generator

*** REMOTE GEMS ***
Updating Gem source index for: http://gems.rubyforge.org
ERROR: Error fetching remote gem cache: getaddrinfo: System error
[[email protected] rubygems]#

Gem will not connect to the server for some reason I have tested the
gems.rubyforge.com url with lynx and I managed to load a list of the
gems, so it seems that my box can see the site. Sadly, gem does not see
the same thing as lynx :frowning:

Any ideas where I go from where?

Thanks,
Brann
