buffer error while executing gem

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Ronald Fischer, May 14, 2007.

  1. Hello,

    when running on Windows XP gem.exe which comes with Ruby 1.8.5, I get
    the following error:

    H:\>C:\ruby185\bin\gem install net-ssh
    Bulk updating Gem source index for: http://gems.rubyforge.org
    Install required dependency needle? [Yn]
    ERROR: While executing gem ... (Zlib::BufError)
    buffer error

    What could be the reason? Here is my gem environment:

    H:\>C:\ruby185\bin\gem environment
    RubyGems Environment:
    - VERSION: 0.9.2 (0.9.2)
    - INSTALLATION DIRECTORY: C:/ruby185/lib/ruby/gems/1.8
    - GEM PATH:
    - C:/ruby185/lib/ruby/gems/1.8
    - REMOTE SOURCES:
    - http://gems.rubyforge.org
