"sudo gem install rails" not able to install thin dependency

Hi folks,

I’m having trouble getting gems to install rails. It just keeps asking
me which version of thin I want to install. Until I choose skip or
cancel, in which case I’m told that something has gone wrong.

Any advice?

Thanks kindly,

Tommy

PS: Gems is 0.94.

Have you tried using a capital ‘Y’ when responding to ‘[Yn]’?

Unfortunately, it makes no difference.

Hi, I would recommended updating Rubygems to 1.3.5?

It may be worth updating RubyGems using
sudo gem update --system
