I already sent this to the Rails list, but I figure someone here might
how to troubleshoot this.
Apparently rails didn’t install correctly on my Mandrake 10.0 system.
[slitt@mydesk work]$ rails demo
report_activate_error': Could not find RubyGem rails (> 0) (Gem::LoadError) from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:141:inactivate’
require_gem_with_options' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:31:inrequire_gem’
What is “RubyGem rails (> 0)”?
I installed rails with this command as root:
gem install rails --include-dependencies
It errored out (can’t remember what it didn’t find) so I ran it again
said it installed successfully.
My Mandrake 10.0 came with Ruby 1.8.1 which is insufficient for rails,
installed ruby 1.8.4 in /usr/local/bin, and then renamed the ruby in
to ruby.1.8.1, and then set up a symlink from /usr/bin/ruby
to /usr/local/bin/ruby. At that point, running Ruby brought up 1.8.4.
I have no idea what the error message meant by “RubyGem rails (> 0)”.
anyone give me some hints on how to troubleshoot this?
