gem list empty

Hi all
         After I try to install a gem locally using .gem file.My gem
list is showing empty.

        I am using RVM.

         But my app is running and gems are there in directory.

         $gem list
          o/p:
         *** LOCAL GEMS ***

      Please help me out this issue.Thanks in advance...

Are you using bundler (with a Gemfile ?)

What is output of

$ gem list # full output please
$ bundle exec gem list # this should really show activerecord etc.

The output from above commands can be different !

To use a locally installed gem in a Gemfile with bundler,
something like this may be required:

Gemfile:

gem ‘linecache19’, ‘0.5.13’, :path => “~/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p0/gems/linecache19-0.5.13/”

HTH,

Peter

Also try to check your gemsets with this command:

rvm gemset list

maybe the gems are installing in a different gemset and even a different ruby installation.

Hope this helps!
