    Help out a poor dumb Pythonista who's trying to give rails a try.

    I'm running OSX 10.3.9. I followed the directions at http://www.rubyonrails.org/down and
    installed from source ruby 1.8.4. OSX came with ruby 1.6.8 pre-installed in /usr/bin. I
    moved that to /usr/bin/ruby-1.6.8 and make /usr/bin/ruby a symlink to /usr/local/bin/ruby.
    All of this went well:

    Roy-Smiths-Computer:rubygems-0.9.0$ ruby --version
    ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [powerpc-darwin7.9.0]

    Then I downloaded RubyGems, which went not so well:

    Roy-Smiths-Computer:rubygems-0.9.0$ gem --version
    /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/cmd_manager.rb:52:in `initialize':
    uninitialized constant Gem::CommandManager::HelpCommand (NameError)
    from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/cmd_manager.rb:46:in `instance'
    from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/gem_runner.rb:25:in `run'
    from /usr/local/bin/gem:23

    Any hints what I might have done wrong, or where to start looking?

    While you're sorting things out, I suggest Locomotive:

    <http://locomotive.raaum.org/>

    It includes everything you need - ruby, needed gems, everything. No
    installation required, doesn't interfere with your stock ruby, because
    it's all contained inside the bundle. Brilliant. Plug, play. m.
