Problems with Rubygems

Hi,

I am facing some issues with Rubygems on my ubuntu gutsy machine,
where Ruby 1.8.6 p111 is compiled and installed with:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local

ruby executable is not symlinked and I have /usr/local/bin in path.

Recently I started to notice that, gem executables while installing
gems aren’t getting created anywhere in path. I thought, it could be a
rubygems version issue and I ran:

sudo gem update --system

which seems to have updated to rubygems version 1.0.1, and yet when i
run:

gem --version
0.9.5

So definitely something fishy going on here!

conservatories; give me the privilege of making my own summer with my
own coals.

this is a simple and maybe stupid reply. I encountered the same problem
yesterday installing rubygems on my vps.

I logged out and problem was fixed.

If logging out fixed it, the problem probably wasn’t fixed. What
probably
happened was that when you updated with gem update --system, it
installed
rubygems 1.0.1 into a different location. Since your shell (probably
bash) had hashed the location of rubygems so it wouldn’t have to go
searching, it continued to use the old binary until you logged out and
logged back in. Run
$ whereis gem
make sure you don’t have extra copies of rubygems hanging around
somewhere, and clean up the mess if you do.

Well for me, logging out doesn’t resolve the problem and the problem
persists. I don’t have any rubygems installation hanging around. I do
have Ruby1.9 compiled and installed, but its not in path and I
generally use aliases ruby2 and gem2 to run my programs with Ruby1.9.

Rubygems updating is somewhat broken for old versions (and 0.9.5 is
reaaaaally old).

Another upgrade path is to install the “rubygems-update” gem (over
internet or from a gem file) and then run “update_rubygems”.

I would recommend to install each app in its own folder:
/usr/local/ruby, then update your $PATH accordingly, otherwise
everything gets mixed up. Now you could uninstall and easily update your
compiled software with simply rm -rf /usr/local/ruby.
