Rails issue when using Rails 2.3.2 and Ruby 1.9.1

a) What’s does the following commands generate?

ruby -v

gem -v

b) Did you try to install Rails using the following?

sudo gem install rails

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Conrad,

a)

Doug-Lillas-Computer:~ douglilla$ ruby -v
ruby 1.9.1p129 (2009-05-12 revision 23412) [powerpc-darwin9.6.0]
Doug-Lillas-Computer:~ douglilla$ gem -v
1.3.4
Doug-Lillas-Computer:~ douglilla$

b)

Yes I installed with sudo gem rails

If that’s the case, why are your error messages referencing files in

/Users/douglilla/.gem

instead

<parent_directory_of_gem_repository>/gem

Usually, this happens when you do not perform the installation of gems

as root and the gem executable will use ${HOME}/.gem as the fallback.

OK, what’s does the following produce?

gem environment

Here's what the command gem environment lists:

Doug-Lillas-Computer:~ douglilla$ gem environment

I guess I will need to reinstall? My set-up was working fine until I
upgraded. Thanks for your help!

DL, please try doing the following:

rm -rfi ${HOME}/.gem

Conrad,

I used the command you suggested, ended up deleting some 1.8 files and
then came up with this:

Doug-Lillas-Computer:~ douglilla$ rm -rfi ${HOME}/.gem
examine files in directory /Users/douglilla/.gem? yes
examine files in directory /Users/douglilla/.gem/ruby? yes
examine files in directory /Users/douglilla/.gem/ruby/1.8? yes
examine files in directory /Users/douglilla/.gem/ruby/1.8/cache? yes
remove /Users/douglilla/.gem/ruby/1.8/cache/actionmailer-2.3.2.gem? no
remove /Users/douglilla/.gem/ruby/1.8/cache/actionpack-2.3.2.gem? no
remove /Users/douglilla/.gem/ruby/1.8/cache/activerecord-2.3.2.gem? no
remove /Users/douglilla/.gem/ruby/1.8/cache/activeresource-2.3.2.gem? no
remove /Users/douglilla/.gem/ruby/1.8/cache/activesupport-2.3.2.gem? no
remove /Users/douglilla/.gem/ruby/1.8/cache/builder-2.1.2.gem? no

Apparently a lot of gems got installed in the wrong directory??

Thanks,

DL

DL, all you gems should be installed in the following:

For Ruby 1.9.1 gems: /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1

For Ruby 1.8 gems: /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8

Thus, you shouldn’t be installing your gems ${HOME}/.gems because this isn’t the

correct place for them if you’re using sudo.

Good luck,

-Conrad
