Ruby Gem Issue


#1

I get this error below when running :make in my macvim editor

:!rake 2>&1| tee
/var/folders/vb/vb1WTMY3ERGWQBNjCq03fk+++TI/-Tmp-/v802427/3
Rails requires RubyGems >= 1.3.1 (you have 1.0.1). Please gem update --system and try again.
(in /Users/musdev/peepcode/my_blog)
(1 of 1): (in /Users/musdev/peepcode/my_blog)

But when I type gem --version in my terminal it says I have the latest
1.3.4
Is something possibly wrong with my set up somewhere?

Likely the path for vim is not the same as the path for your shell.

:!gem env and :!echo $PATH vs gem env and echo $PATH will help you
figure it out.

Thanks for the response!!
I typed in :!echo $PATH vs gem env and echo $PATH

/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin vs gem env and echo
/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin

So do I need to add gem to usr/bin?

Thanks

“vs” is not part of the command.

run echo $PATH via vim and shell

run gem env via vim and shell

include output from all four commands in your email.

You’re going to have to learn how to run shell commands from your
editor first. Look at the help on !. You probably have your shell
environment set up incorrectly. I can’t help you with that.

Hey Eric,

Sorry for the delay, had the flu, wasnt active at all this last week.

OUTPUT: echo $PATH via vim => /usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin

OUTPUT: echo $PATH via shell =>
/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/mysql/bin:/usr/lib:/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X11/bin

OUTPUT: gem env via vim => message displays reading "Not an editor
command:gemenv

OUTPUT: gem env via shell => RubyGems Environment:
