gem bundle doesnt work when you only have the latest prerelease version of the gem installed #1

Checkout edge rails, install the latest prerelease version of bundler, then type gem bundle in the edge rails app directory.

The first error you'd get looks like this:

If you type gem cleanup bundler, then type gem bundle in the edge rails app directory, then this will happen:

Is rubygems unable to pick up a gem plugin if it's in a prerelease gem? Or am I just getting ahead of myself while edge rails and bundler are in a state of flux? :) Either way, its not currently working


This is now a binary. You run commands by using: "bundle install". You can see a list of options by just running "bundle"


Gotcha. Thanks!

$ bundle
/Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/bundler-0.9.0.pre4/bin/bundle:5: uninitialized constant Bundler::BundlerError (NameError)
from /usr/bin/bundle:19:in `load'
from /usr/bin/bundle:19

I still can't get bundler to do much at all (0.9.0.pre4)


ah, same problem. had to gem uninstall bundler -v 0.8.1


Thank you for this fix!


I uninstalled and installed bundler but the "bundle command" is not present


Make sure that you have the bin folder of your local gems in the PATH. For this is ~/.gem/ruby/1.8/bin/


yeah it was that thanks


Sorry for the confusion. If a doc modification would help, please submit a patch. Thanks.


Where homebrew puts ruby (and where homebrew ruby puts its gem binaries) has nothing to do with bundler, sorry.
