This line seems strange:  install -c -m 0644 ubygems.rb /usr/local/lib/
site_ruby/1.8/ubygems.rb

It looks like it is missing an "r" ... but I might just be nitpicking
here. Have you tried installing an older version (say 1.3.0) and then
updating to 1.3.1? Also, do you have the development headers for Ruby
1.8.7 installed. I know I just did this same installation maybe last
week, but I might have gone from 1.3.0 to 1.3.1.

I have Ruby 1.8.7 installed and I tried going from 1.3.0 to 1.3.1 and
recieved the same error again.

Did you do an apt-get install ruby-full or just the ruby package?

I used this command: $ sudo apt-get install ruby irb rdoc libruby1.8
ruby1.8-dev

I got it from Beginning rails from novice to professional book.

I'm assuming if i have the latest version wouldn't everything with it
come installed?

I've also tried the command you put there and received this message:

mrmaster@mrmaster-laptop:/usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8$ sudo apt-get

Make sure you put the dash in between ruby and full.

Looking at what you installed, I'm thinking that is not the problem,
but it might not hurt.

Everything works now. Thank you soo much for your help. Just a recap I
think the problem was my ruby install the ruby full install command you
gave fixed everything.

Excellent. I'm still trying to figure out what was missing, but there
must have been a dependency missing. I'm glad I could help.

Just in case anybody else is having the same problem.

I encountered the same problem and, based on the error message, just did
a

yum install ruby-rdoc

That seems to have fixed it.

I'm on CentOS 5.2, there is no rubyfull/ruby-full in the default repo

Thank-you Thank-you Thank-you

Was having the same problem.  The installing ruby-rdoc solved the
problem.
