Rubygem install "Invalid argument - sources-0.0.1.gem"


#1

Hi,

This morning, I wanted to upgrade my rubygems install : 0.9.0 -> 0.9.1

I’ve launched “ruby setup.rb” as root and got that at the end :

hook /var/www/rubygems-0.9.1/./post-install.rb failed:
Invalid argument - sources-0.0.1.gem
Try ‘ruby setup.rb --help’ for detailed usage.

I’ve messed with rubygems files trying to delete it and do a fresh
install but now I don’t have any working version of rubygems.

It’s the same if I try to re-install rubygems 0.9.0.

I’m on Debian testing.

Thanks for any help !

What does:

ruby -d setup.rb

say when it gets to post-install.rb?

Is there any lead around here ?
I’m completly stuck :frowning:

Thanks

Hi,

I forgot to say that the computer is a Sun Enterprise 220R : dual
Sparc64.

I don’t think it’s important because I managed to install rubygems 0.9.0
once without any problem and now 0.9.0 and 0.9.1 are not working.


#6

Hi, I get the same with rubtgems 0.9.2

I think I’m very unlucky !

ruby -d setup.rb

Can you verify what the lines surrounding this line are?

cat -n /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/package.rb | grep ‘26[0-9]’


#8

cat -n /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/package.rb | grep ‘26[0-9]’

260 final_pos = @io.pos
261 @io.pos = init_pos
262 header = TarHeader.new(:name => name, :mode => mode,
263 :size => size, :prefix =>
prefix).to_s
264 @io.write header
265 @io.pos = final_pos
266 end

268 def mkdir(name, mode)

Thanks for your answer

Hrm, it seems that something bogus is going on with your installation.

First, site_ruby should be under /usr/local/lib/ruby, not /usr/local/
lib.

Second, line 264 should be “@io.pos = final_pos”, not what you’ve got.

Can you try removing /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb and /
usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/* and reinstalling? I suspect
those files are from an older version of RubyGems and are getting in
the way.

I’ve removed everything, including ruby itself, …
when I do “apt-get install ruby1.8-dev ruby1.8 ri1.8 rdoc1.8 irb1.8
libreadline-ruby1.8 libruby1.8”, I get things in “/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/”

I thing I have to tune the setup config for Rubygems, but I don’t know
which way.

Thanks for your help

If do “ruby setup.rb config” then “ruby setup.rb show” :
prefix /usr
bindir $prefix/bin
libdir $prefix/lib
datadir $prefix/share
mandir $prefix/share/man
sysconfdir /etc
stdruby $libdir/ruby/1.8
siteruby $prefix/local/lib/site_ruby
siterubyver $siteruby/1.8
siterubyverarch $siterubyver/sparc-linux
rbdir $siterubyver
sodir $siterubyverarch
rubypath /usr/bin/ruby1.8
rubyprog /usr/bin/ruby1.8
makeprog make
shebang ruby
without-ext no

But I don’t understand why it is using “siteruby” instead of “stdruby”
which seems to be right for me.

Did RubyGems install successfully now?

You shouldn’t, it follows what rbconfig says, which depends upon how
Ruby was configured.

stdruby $libdir/ruby/1.8
siteruby $prefix/local/lib/site_ruby
siterubyver $siteruby/1.8

Since this is how your ruby was configured, its fine, but a bit odd.
So long as rbconfig is self-consistent it should work fine.

But I don’t understand why it is using “siteruby” instead of “stdruby”
which seems to be right for me.

Nothing but Ruby’s “make install” should install things in to
stdruby. No other files belong there.

No !! I have the exact same error, with 0.9.[0-2]

I even tried to install the official Debian package for rubygems. Then :

gem -v

0.9.0

gem update --system

OK I undestand the logic, but still, I’m stuck and begin to be desperate

I’m sorry the bother you with my strange problem, but for now you are my
only help out there. Thanks again.

It seems to be the standard config for the Ruby Debian package

which seems to be right for me.

stdruby. No other files belong there.

OK

There is definitly a problem with the Ruby Debian package.

On a clone (hardware) server with a minimal Debian, the problem is the
same.

BUT if i install Ruby from sources, I get no problem at all ; rubygems
is installed and is self-updated.

I hope I can get back to Debian packages soon when it’s solved.

Where could I submit the “bug” (or whatever it really is) ?
