Problems with gems


#1

Hi

I tried to install the rails gem using igem. Is that supposed to work?

» igem install rails
ERROR: Error installing rails:
attempt to install file into
“test/fixtures/test_mailer/implicitly_multipart_example.text.html.erb~”
under
ools/ironruby/merlin/External/languages/ruby/ruby-1.8.6/lib/ironruby/gems/1.8/gems/actionmailer-2.2.2"

I then tried to install them one by one with --ignore-dependencies

» igem install --ignore-dependencies --verbose activesupport-2.2.2.gem
Installing gem actionmailer-2.2.2

C:/tools/ironruby/merlin/main/Languages/Ruby/libs/…/…/…/…/External/languages/ruby/ruby-1.8.6//
onruby/gems/1.8/cache/actionmailer-2.2.2.gem
ERROR: While executing gem … (NoMethodError)
undefined method `include?’ for nil:NilClass

When I copied the gem files, cache and specifications over from MRI they
list properly but when I try to generate an application skeleton it
seems
like something is wrong in the way it handles the paths.

I had a similar thing happen to me when I tried to install rake but then
it
created a folder -0.8.3 instead of rake-0.8.3 after some tinkering i did
get
rake working but rails doesn’t seem to be really happy atm.

Yes, this is supposed to work – at least when using the MS™ CLR ☺. I
used both rake and sinatra as test cases when I was eliminating
obstacles to making “igem install” work. I wonder if the problem here
might be that the path construction temporarily resulted in something
greater than the permissible path length – in particular, the
“…/…/…/…” may need to be resolved before we send it to a .NET API.
Also, the paths on our internal sources still look somewhat different
than those we push out.
