Problem with rubygem


#1

Hello every body,

I tried to install ruby and rubygem. So I have downloaded :
ruby-1.8.5-p2 and rubygem-0.9.4  no problem for their installation.

But when I tried to do: gem install rails --include-dependencies, i have
got a error message:

ERROR: While executing gem…(Gem: RemoteFetcher::FetchError)
              getaddrinfo: Temporary failure in name

resolutio(SocketError)

So anybody know what’s the matter? Thanks very much!!

This means that gem can’t resolve the name of a remote server, i. e.
http://gems.rubyforge.org

Can you connect to this server using a browser or a command line tool
like curl?

Hi, Lutz

Thank you very much for your help. I have installed the connection
Intenet in my server just now. And I tried to reinstall the rubygem. But
this time I got:

Bulk updating Gem source index for http://gems.rubyforge.org
ERROR: While executing gem…(Gem::GemNotFoundException)
Could not find rails(>0) in any repository

What does it mean? And I tied to connect http://gems.rubyforge.org
with a browser but failed. Can you give me some advices more?? Thank you
very much!!!

What are the exact parameters you call gem with?

with a browser but failed.

Hm, I get a page with “Welcome to the RubyGems distribution website”
on it. It seems you have to recheck your internet connection.

Did you try to click on the “download” link at this site, i.e. where
it says “To download and install RubyGems please visit rubygems”?
It seems that this link is broken.
