Rails-3.0.0.beta3 install error on ri 'lib' ENOENT

Hi,

I was getting an odd error installing rails-3.0.0.beta3 on a fresh
Ubuntu 10.04 install. The same exact error was occurring on my Ubuntu
9.10 install, so I’m sure it isn’t something specific to the Ubuntu
version (nor beta for that matter).

This is the error:

ERROR: While executing gem … (Errno::ENOENT)
No such file or directory - lib

I tried creating lib directory in the following location to see if it
would resolve the issue, and it seems to have worked:

/usr/lib/ruby1.9.1/gems/1.9.1/gems/rails-3.0.0.beta3/lib

Any idea why gem/rails/ri didn’t try to create the lib directory prior
to attempting the install?

Full debug/backtrace below.

Fernando, have you tried installing Rails 3.0 Beta 4? If not, I would
recommended trying the latest.

Good luck,

-Conrad

adding --no-ri --no-rdoc did the trick.
