I’ve installed rubygems manually (no package manager) in my home directory. But since then “gem –version” reported that it could not it’s version. So now I’ve removed the previous installed version, downloaded the tar and reinstalled. I’ve used this command to install this time:
ruby setup.rb --destdir=~/.rubygems --prefix=/
And now it runs fine!
leon@polly:~$ gem1.8 --version 1.2.0
And I’ve installed ruby 1.8.7 (from Intrepid) on Ubuntu Hardy. But more on that in my next post.
