Errors, errors, and more errors.

Rolling Ruby, Rails, etc on a Powerbook (OSX 10.4). I've had a
successful install for many months, and then I upgraded Ruby to 1.8.6
and used gem to update Rails to 2.0.2.

Upon install, Rails stopped working and threw a whole series of errors.
I updated rubygem and the errors went away (except for one), and rails
started working again.

That error: /usr/local/bin/rails:17:Warning: require_gem is obsolete.
Use gem instead.

Exciting stuff. But that's not really the issue. When I use gem now, I
get this:

Antimatter:~ js$ sudo gem update
Updating installed gems...
ERROR: While executing gem ... (NoMethodError)
    undefined method `refresh' for #<Hash:0x137084c>

I get this error regardless of the command I use for gem (install,
update, etc.) I mean, at least rails is working now, but does anybody
have any insight as to how I can fix this situation? I haven't done
anything particularly wonky... and I have zero clue as to how I can fix
this.

Advice is very much appreciated!

My guess is that in config/boot.rb you've got a couple legacy lines that have 'require_gem' in them. Change those to just 'gem' and try again.

This also happens when I just type "rails *projectname*"... is there a
global configuration that I can modify to take out the legacy lines?

Hmmm, “rails projectname” gives me a correct 2.0.2 boot.rb. Try ‘rails
-v’ to see what version you get.

Ok, I wasn't expecting that. I don't think I'm going to be much more help.

LOL, yeah, I'm pretty stymied too...

Whats your gem version?
Maybe try sudo gem update - -system,

0.9.2

Maybe try sudo gem update - -system,

Antimatter:~ js$ sudo gem update --system
Updating RubyGems...
ERROR: While executing gem ... (NoMethodError)
    undefined method `refresh' for #<Hash:0x1370568>

Bump.

Anybody got any ideas?

Maybe try installing latest version of gem from the source. Otherwise
I'm out of ideas - hope you get lucky :slight_smile:
