Ruby 1.9.1p0 (2009-01-30 revision 21907)

Hi, I am working on Windows XP and have install Ruby 1.9.1. After
extracting Ruby 1.9.1 to c:\ruby I was able to issue 'ruby -v' and see
that the intended version installs.

1. When I tried checking the rubygems version with 'gem -v' I get the
following error:
c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/rubygems-update-1.3.5/lib/rubygems/config_file.rb:39:in
`new': wrong number of arguments (5 for 4) (ArgumentError)

2. When I tried doing a 'gem update --system' I get the same error.

Questions:
1. Is it best to extract Ruby 1.9.1 into a fresh c:\ruby directory that
is empty? Are you supposed to overlay it on a previous version, if so
which version?

2. What version of RubyGems is recommended for Ruby 1.9.1 and is there a
way to install a specific Rubygems version rather than just getting the
latest?

3. What version of Rails is production ready for Ruby 1.9.1?

Thanks in advance, Calvin.

A fresh install. 1.9.1p0 is very old too; upgrade to the latest patchlevel.

2. What version of RubyGems is recommended for Ruby 1.9.1 and is there a

RubyGems is bundled with 1.9.1.

3. What version of Rails is production ready for Ruby 1.9.1?

Rails has been 1.9 ready since 2.1. For best results, use 2.3.3 and
the latest 1.9.1 release.

Best,
