Trouble installing ruby-debug

try installing the sources gem first, and the rubyforge one... it
might help

I am sorry but I don't understand what do you mean when you say "try
installing the sources gem first, and the rubyforge one... it might
help" - How do I do that?

Apoligies for not thinking through and investigating. Based on your
suggestion, here is what I did.

gem install sources

then

gem install ruby-debug -y

And everything worked fine. A bit of educational question however, what
exactly is the function of sources gem?

Thanks again.

Follow up questions:

1. I found that the gem install ruby-debug -y command had installed:
ruby-debug-0.10.1 and ruby-debug-base-0.10.1. I thought that the most
recent version of ruby-debug was 0.9.3? Why did it install 0.10.1 then?

2. I am trying to install ruby-debug-ide which gives me the following
response:

ERROR: Error installing ruby-debug-ide:
        ruby-debug-ide requires ruby-debug-base (= 0.10.0)

Please advise.

Bharat Ruparel:

ruby-debug-0.10.1 appears to be a broken release.

I posted some instructions at the top of here on how to roll back to
0.10.0:

(i'll remove the instructions when the problem is resolved, for those
of you who stumble upon this message after the fact)

Thanks Tim. Works.
