Hello,

as root I've done the following:

myroot# gem -v
0.8.4
myroot# gem install rubygems
Attempting local installation of 'rubygems'
Local gem file not found: rubygems*.gem
Attempting remote installation of 'rubygems'
Successfully installed rubygems-update, version 0.8.6
Installing RDoc documentation for rubygems-update-0.8.6...
WARNING: Generating RDoc on .gem that may not have RDoc.
myroot# gem -v
0.8.4
myroot#

-> Version doesn't change..

bye!
Dominik

Next, run `update_rubygems'. It'd be nice if that was automatic...

With the latest versions of RubyGems (0.8.5+), you can do:

gem update --system

It will install the rubygems-update gem and update itself.
