Problems installing hoe #8

I'm trying to install the hoe gem using SlimGems, but the follow problem happens:

1.8.7@slimgems-hoe-bug:~$ gem install hoe -v=2.9.0
Fetching: hoe-2.9.0.gem (100%) 
ERROR:  Error installing hoe:
    hoe requires SlimGems version >= 1.4. Try 'gem update --system' to update SlimGems itself.

I'm using RVM with ruby ree-1.8.7-2010.02 and SlimGems version

If you guys need more info about the environment, just ask me.

Hi. This is not a bug. SlimGems is a fork at RubyGems 1.3.7 (documented in the README and on the site). Hoe 2.9.0 is simply incompatible with RubyGems 1.3.7 and therefore SlimGems. You can use an older version, or submit patches to hoe's maintainers to make it work with earlier versions of RubyGems. AFAIK there shouldn't be any reason for hoe to require a specific version of RG.
