Hi. I'm am new to Ruby on Rails and I'm trying to get my environment up and running. I know that Ruby and Rails are pre installed on Mac OS 10.5 but I was having some problems. I went and updated everything with gem update --system, gem update, etc. However: [Macintosh:rails/work/demo] jslicari% ruby script/server Rails requires RubyGems >= . Please install RubyGems and try again: http://rubygems.rubyforge.org Doesn't even tell me what version it needs. But: [Macintosh:rails/work/demo] jslicari% gem env RubyGems Environment: - RUBYGEMS VERSION: 1.3.1 - RUBY VERSION: 1.8.6 (2008-03-03 patchlevel 114) [universal- darwin9.0] - INSTALLATION DIRECTORY: /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8 - RUBY EXECUTABLE: /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/ Versions/1.8/usr/bin/ruby - EXECUTABLE DIRECTORY: /usr/bin - RUBYGEMS PLATFORMS: - ruby - universal-darwin-9 - GEM PATHS: - /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8 - /Users/jslicari/.gem/ruby/1.8 - /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/lib/ ruby/gems/1.8 - GEM CONFIGURATION: - :update_sources => true - :verbose => true - :benchmark => false - :backtrace => false - :bulk_threshold => 1000 - REMOTE SOURCES: - http://gems.rubyforge.org/ So RubyGems seems to be here with the latest and greatest version. Something seems to be very out of sync here but I can't figure out what. I also tried downloaded rubygems 1.3.1 and installing it again but that crashes: [Macintosh:~/desktop/rubygems-1.3.1] jslicari% ruby setup.rb ./lib/rubygems.rb:723:in `set_paths': uninitialized constant Gem::Etc (NameError) from ./lib/rubygems.rb:719:in `each' from ./lib/rubygems.rb:719:in `set_paths' from ./lib/rubygems.rb:526:in `path' from ./lib/rubygems/source_index.rb:66:in `installed_spec_directories' from ./lib/rubygems/source_index.rb:56:in `from_installed_gems' from ./lib/rubygems.rb:736:in `source_index' from ./lib/rubygems/gem_path_searcher.rb:86:in `init_gemspecs' from ./lib/rubygems/gem_path_searcher.rb:21:in `initialize' from ./lib/rubygems.rb:684:in `new' from ./lib/rubygems.rb:684:in `searcher' from ./lib/rubygems.rb:683:in `synchronize' from ./lib/rubygems.rb:683:in `searcher' from ./lib/rubygems/custom_require.rb:34:in `require' from /sw/lib/ruby/1.8/tmpdir.rb:12 from ./lib/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:in `gem_original_require' from ./lib/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:in `require' from setup.rb:95 I'm out of ideas. Thanks

Have you tried: sudo gems update --system Also, to install RubyGems from the source you need to add sudo: sudo ruby setup.rb

Yes. I used sudo doing the update. I also tried doing sudo gem cleanup and had all sorts of errors. I found somewhere that showed how to do explicit removals using gem list -d to find out what is installed where and gem uninstall --install-dir <dir> <gem> to uninstall. So now I think I have removed all of the old versions But that still hasn't solved the problem of being unable to start the webrick server. I still get the error: [Macintosh:rails/work/demo] jslicari% sudo ruby script/server Password: Rails requires RubyGems >= . Please install RubyGems and try again: http://rubygems.rubyforge.org

Thanks, but this doesn't work. Something must be really messed up here [Macintosh:~] jslicari% gem -v 1.3.1 [Macintosh:~] jslicari% rails -v Rails 2.2.2 [Macintosh:~] jslicari% sudo gem update --system Password: Updating RubyGems Nothing to update [Macintosh:~] jslicari% sudo gem update rails Updating installed gems Nothing to update [Macintosh:~] jslicari% cd Projects [Macintosh:~/Projects] jslicari% cd rails [Macintosh:~/Projects/rails] jslicari% rails testme [...] [Macintosh:~/Projects/rails] jslicari% cd testme [Macintosh:~/Projects/rails/testme] jslicari% script/server Rails requires RubyGems >= .

I'm not sure how to uninstall completely though and really make sure everything is gone. So how would I remove it by hand and verify it is all gone?
