Ruby 1.9, Rubygems, and .gemspec warnings

Hi all
I’m getting a massive amount of gemspec warnings to STDERR in Ruby 1.9.1
whenever ‘rubygems/specification’ gets required. The error I’m seeing
is:

WARNING: #<NoMethodError: undefined method `>’ for nil:NilClass>
WARNING: Invalid .gemspec format in
‘/Users/rsanheim/.gem/ruby/1.9.1/specifications/rake-0.8.7.gemspec’

This is happening for just about any gem I install under 1.9, so I don’t
think its an issue specific to any one gem. I only see the warnings
if I
require rubygems/specification – I can use gems and require rubygems
without the issue.

I’ve included full output of the issue on pastie, because the log is
pretty
long, as gems spits out the full gemspec along side the warnings:

http://pastie.org/608299

Note that the log is from Leopard, but I’ve also seen the issue on
Ubuntu
8.10.

Does this look like something I’m installing wrong, or should I file an
issue against rubygems?

Thanks,
Rob

Hey… Did you get a fix for this?
I’m also seeing the same issue. Snow Leopard, ruby 1.9.1

It is definitely a problem with the ‘jeweler’ gem. I’m raising a bug
in github now…

http://github.com/technicalpickles/jeweler/issues

I don’t think so, I can reproduce this without jeweler in the mix at
all.

I just repro’d this with:

Passed: 1.9.1-p129, 1.8.7-p72, 1.8.7-p160, 1.8.6-p368

That’s easy enough to poke around at. I’ll get eric’s eyeballs on it.

OK… Just figured it out. Something bad juju with 1.9’s gem_prelude
vs rubygems. Easy fix:

% sudo gem uninstall rubygems-update

then this should work:

% multiruby -rubygems -rrubygems/specification -e ‘gem “hoe”’

I don’t remember how I installed gems on this box, but it didn’t involve
the
rubygems update gem. I think rvm grabs gems from source, not sure:

Why do you have rubygems installed on 1.9.1? I think that’s the entire
problem.

rm -r /Users/rsanheim/.rvm/ruby-1.9.1-p243/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.9.1/

Well, I recommend you don’t do that.

Reverting to gems 1.3.1 “fixes” it:

It doesn’t “fix” it, it fixes it.

Besides, I’ve seen this on other developer’s machines, so its
clearly not a
‘just on my box’ bug.

Nobody implied that it was. It will happen on any instance of 1.9
where you install your own rubygems update. So, for now, don’t do that.

Don, i think you just don’t. Rubygems now is part of/comes bunded with
Ruby 1.9.

However, i was having the same issue runnig on ruby 1.9.2dev (2009-09-15
trunk 24928) [-darwin9.8.0], but only with a library/gem using Jeweler.

Removing Jeweler solved the problem.

Rubygems comes bundled with Ruby 1.9, but IIRC its version 1.3.1 - or at
least it reports itself as such. So once you run gem update --system,
the
bug appears, at least until you remove that gem update.
