Rubygems win32 error with ruby 1.8.4 (final)

hi all. i’m using the ruby 1.8.4 binary from garbagecollect with dll’s
mentioned in the ‘how to install’ section. all seems fine except
rubygems reports this error when i try to install anything -

"Could not find RubyGem sources (0.0.0) (Gem::LoadError).

according to the gems website this was a problem with an earlier
version, but i’m using 0.8.11

thanks for any ideas

or does someone have a link to the preview3 of ruby 1.8.4? i’m pretty
sure that worked ok.

well, it was a blasted dll issue. i love windows! long live microsuck

you may just need to set a few environmental variables to
indicate to ruby and gem where to look for your files.
the following is an example for somebody using a bash shell.
your paths and shell may differ – adjust accordingly.

export RUBYLIB=/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8:/lib/ruby/1.8
export GEM_PATH=/lib/ruby/gems/1.8
export GEM_HOME=/lib/ruby/gems/1.8

FWIW, lots of past Ruby versions are mirrored here:
