RubyGems

DESCRIPTION

RubyGems is a package management framework for Ruby.

This gem is an update for the RubyGems software. You must have an installation of RubyGems before this update can be applied.

See Gem for information on RubyGems (or `ri Gem`)

To upgrade to the latest RubyGems, run:

$ gem update --system  # you might need to be an administrator or root

See UPGRADING.rdoc for more details and alternative instructions.


NOTE: Ruby 1.9 ships with rubygems and contains a very buggy “gem-prelude”. It is a gem loading system that can interfere with updating rubygems itself. We do NOT recommend you update to rubygems 1.4 if you're running ruby 1.9.x until we get that sorted out in a future ruby release.

If you absolutely hate kittens and you must upgrade, you're going to have to do something really hokey like:

% alias ruby19=“ruby19 –disable-gems” % alias gem19=“ruby19 –disable-gems -S gem”

Even deleting the stock rubygems in 1.9 doesn't fix this situation.


If you don't have any RubyGems install, there is still the pre-gem approach to getting software, doing it manually:

  • Download from: rubygems.org/pages/download

  • Unpack into a directory and cd there

  • Install with: ruby setup.rb # you may need admin/root privilege

For more details and other options, see:

ruby setup.rb --help
