Which gem is it?
If that is literally says, then the author of that gem misspelled
rubygems.

Otherwise, you have a path issue.

Not exactly. ‘ubygems.rb’ ship with RubyGems as a convenience. It
allows:

ruby -rubygems

rather than

ruby -rrubygems

(note the two r’s).

That still doesn’t help with the problem though. I can’t imagine why
installing a gem would complain about not being able to find ubygems.

is it maybe ruby1.9 only?
I see in your command ruby1.8 so that could be the problem?

I could be wrong (probably) but just try to help.

Hi,

The gem is ffi, which is pretty widely used I think, for calls to C
libraries.
I put an issue in with the authors. I don’t have much ruby
experience,so it might be something I’m doing.
