Problems 4.2 installing on Windows?


#1

I keep an old Windows machine around for making sure that RedCloth
Win32 binary gems install. When I try gem update RedCloth, it just
installs 4.1.9. Did I do something wrong in the gemspec? Would
someone else with a windows machine try it and let me know how it goes?

Has the gem propagated to the mirrors?

I think so. Tried again a day later and still got the same thing.

C:>gem install RedCloth -v 4.2

Hmmmm. There’s been too much happening on the Rubygems list of late
for me to keep up with changes, but that explicit version request and
results look like a bug in rubgems to my uninformed eye. I suppose
updating your rubygems doesn’t help?

I’m seeing this:

hgs@Q2P14HGS /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/RedCloth-4.2.0
20:21:28$ gem query --remote -d -a -n RedCloth

What does (I’m not sure this is right, but from gem install --help):

C:>gem install RedCloth -v 4.2 --platform=x86-mswin32-60

do for you?
