I installed gem on a few machines (identical machines). When I do gem
list --remote on some of them, they dump a big list of packages. When I
do the same command on one of them, it returns nothing:

[root@devbox1 1.8]# gem list --remote

*** REMOTE GEMS ***
[root@devbox1 1.8]#

Anyone have an idea what's going on? I tried reinstalling it a few times
already.

Also, when I do a gem list --remote rails, I dont see a version 1.2.3 on
there... nor do I see a rake 0.7.2. Could these packages just be too new
to be in a gem repo or is there some sort of list update that I need to
do?

Thanks!

(ruby noob here)

What happens when you just try to 'gem install' something?  Does it
complain about sources?  I remember having trouble with an older
version of rubygems where the installer wouldn't install the sources
gem.  But I don't often use list --remote so I'm not sure if it's the
same issue.

Hey,

I downloaded the gem for rake and it installed just fine using gem
install /path/to/rake-0.7.2.gem

"What happens when you just try to 'gem install' something? "

if the gem isnt downloaded and i try this, yes it does complain:

 gem install mongrel
ERROR:  While executing gem ... (Gem::GemNotFoundException)
    Could not find mongrel (> 0) in any repository

What does 'gem sources' say?

What version of rubygems?
