Installing ri documentation for rails-3.0.6...
file 'lib' not found
Installing RDoc documentation for rails-3.0.6...
file 'lib' not found

I am tired of these error messages.
Rails forgets to create the folder "lib" at /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/rails-3.0.x/

Every time I update rails, I have to enter "sudo mkdir lib" to create "lib" folder by myself, and then "sudo gem install rails" again.

However, at version 3.0.6, it doesn't work.
Because when I enter "sudo gem install rails" , it will delete the whole “rails-3.0.x” folder.

Please fix it. It isn't difficult.

my environment

ruby 1.9.2p180
gem 1.7.2

Same problem:
sudo gem install rails-3.0.6.gem
Successfully installed rails-3.0.6
1 gem installed
Installing ri documentation for rails-3.0.6...
File not found: lib

As a results of the failure, nothing gets populated in the ../gems/rail-3.0.6 dir except bin/rails.


ruby 1.8.7 (2009-06-12 patchlevel 174)
gem r1.4.2
rails 3.0.6

I, too, have had this problem since the 3.0 beta era. What is the deficiency in our configurations that causes it? (I can't imagine that everyone sees it, because there is so little discussion on the net about what is truy a jarring experience - install routinely failing without explanation.)
