Using ruby 1.9.3-p194 and ruby 1.8.7p370 to run the gem tests fails at the same test:

  1) Error:
Errno::EACCES: Permission denied - setsockopt

I running rake on a Gentoo Linux box.

Run the test as root. Maybe normal users don't have permission for setting socket options.


If you think this is useful, I can send a push request to skip this test.

These tests pass for me on a Debian machine without root.
