rails _x.x.x_ <appname> doesn't work on ubuntu

Hello,

I posted this issue on http://railsforum.com without getting an answer
yet.

I can't create a specific version of rails on ubuntu OS.
Can anyone help me, please?

I have multiple versions of rails:

$ gem list rails
*** LOCAL GEMS ***
rails (2.3.3, 2.2.2, 1.2.6)

When I invoked...
$ rails _1.2.6_ helloApp
$ ls
_1.2.6_ helloApp

As you notice, instead of giving me rail version 1.2.6, it created two
applications: _1.2.6_ rails project and helloApp rails project.
My environment is Ubuntu 9.04 64 bit - Jaunty Jakalope.

Interesting. I just tested this on my Ubuntu 9.04 box and it worked as
expected. Sometimes I understand this sort of issue can indicate
installation problems. What versions of gem and Ruby are you using?

And as a separate issue, why are you trying to create a new app with
such an old version of Rails? Or is this simply for testing?

Best,

It's for testing.

Here is my gem environment:
$ gem environment
RubyGems Environment:
  - RUBYGEMS VERSION: 1.3.1
  - RUBY VERSION: 1.8.7 (2008-08-11 patchlevel 72) [x86_64-linux]

It is ok for me on ubuntu 8.10, though I was forcing version 2.2.2 as
I do not have earlier version installed.

I have rubygems version 1.3.3 (yours is 1.3.1) it might be worth updating that.
