I'm using ruby 4.2, rubygems 1.3.5-1ubuntu2 and Ubuntu Lucid Lynx. I installed ruby and rubygems with Synaptic.
Since "The gem command will output its progress while it sucks down and installs all the necessary gems for a full Merb install. " is written at http://wiki.merbivore.com/howto/installation/gems, when I type
sudo gem update --system, I get:
"ERROR: While executing gem ... (RuntimeError) and rubygems has list, build and help commands, I'm wondering if in Ubuntu rubygems is used only for something other than downloading.
gem update --system is disabled on Debian. RubyGems can be updated using the official Debian repositories by aptitude or apt-get."
If it isn't, why isn't rubygems showing any text for
sudo gem install merb?
