problem with upgrade gems version on shared host

I have an app on a shared host that as of last night has stopped working. The app had been using rails 1.2.1 out of /usr/lib/ruby/gems/ 1.8/gems/rails-1.2.1 and everything was running fine.

Last night my host upgraded gems and that seems to be the source of the problem. I tried just freezing rails but that isn't helping. Here is the production.log...

I believe that I need to run on a local version of rubygems, but I'm not sure how to do this, or if this is the correct approach. Any help is appreciated.

Peter, Not sure if this will help or not...but I had the reverse problem. Here's how I 'froze' gem: http://www.godale.org/blog/2008/04/freezing-rubygems-on-shared-server.html
