Ruby 1.9 not finding gems


#1

Hello,

I installed Ruby 1.9.1 on OSX Tiger using MacPorts.

Then I installed Rubygems into the new installation (by running the
setup.rb after changing my path to point to the new ruby executable).

Any gems that I install install fine and show up in ‘gem list --local’
…and I verified that they are in the gems location in the ruby 1.9
installation. But I am unable to load them using:

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘’

('no such file to load – ').

Any suggestions on what I may be missing?

thanks

You’re supposed to load by filename within the gems, rather than put the
gem name itself. For example, gem install SqlStatement, then require
‘sqlstatement’

1.9.1 comes with Ruby Gems, you shouldn’t have to install it separately.
I would guess you overwrote the 1.9.1 gem stuff.
