gem install issue - possibly RubyForge?

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Giles Bowkett, Nov 26, 2007.

  1. I'm having a gem install issue. I can install most gems with no problem:

    ! sudo gem install twitter
    Successfully installed activesupport-1.4.4
    Successfully installed twitter-0.2.1
    2 gems installed
    Installing ri documentation for activesupport-1.4.4...
    Installing ri documentation for twitter-0.2.1...
    Installing RDoc documentation for activesupport-1.4.4...
    Installing RDoc documentation for twitter-0.2.1...

    but one fails:

    ! sudo gem install platform
    ERROR: could not find platform locally or in a repository

    (This is the same one from the "one-liner?" thread earlier.)

    I hadn't actually found that name in the docs, it had just been a
    guess, so I e-mailed the creator of the gem. Turns out I guessed
    right, and he's able to install it on his laptop and a remote host. He
    said I should check with Tom Copeland but I thought I'd first ask here
    for gem cleaning tips. It seems that if he can download it fine and I
    can't then the problem's probably in my install. I was on the preview
    release of the new RubyGems, but I just did a gem update --system and
    the issue persists.

    I noticed the capital "P" in the download page at RubyForge, the .rb
    file there has a lowercase "p". A bit confusing.
