gem install problem

Hello,

I'm following Dan Benjamin's install tutorial and got stuck at the gem
install. It looks like it installed successfully but the gem command
is not recognized. I located another rubygems install from macports at
"/opt/local/var/macports/sources/rsync.macports.org/release/ports/ruby/
rb-rubygems/" and tried to do a port uninstall and got "Error: port
uninstall failed: Registry error: rubygems not registered as
installed." Any help would be appreciated.

Hello,

I’m following Dan Benjamin’s install tutorial and got stuck at the gem

install. It looks like it installed successfully but the gem command

is not recognized. I located another rubygems install from macports at

"/opt/local/var/macports/sources/[rsync.macports.org/release/ports/ruby/

rb-rubygems/](http://rsync.macports.org/release/ports/ruby/rb-rubygems/)" and tried to do a port uninstall and got "Error: port

uninstall failed: Registry error: rubygems not registered as

installed." Any help would be appreciated.

I think that the path above is just the sources that MacPorts knows about for RubyGems. If RubyGems were installed via MacPorts and /opt/local/bin were on your $PATH, you could use the gem command.

That’s quite an old release of RubyGems. The latest is 1.3.1. Maybe you should remove anything that was installed as part of 0.9.2 and try again with the latest release.
