Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone can assist here -

Have installed Ruby 1.8.6 on Solaris 2.6 (Sparc), and that seemed to
install ok.  I then went to install RubyGems 0.9.4 (as the good book
suggests) and found that I encounter an error partway through the
installation (executed 'ruby setup.rb' at the location of where I
extracted the RubyGem tarfile).

I'm not sure what I'm missing here as the three files (, and are all in the PATH, and can be seen????

Thanks in advance.
