When I installed MacPorts 1.8.2 on MacOS X 10.5.8, it automatically changed my PATH in my .bash_profile file. To fix the “rubygems (LoadError)” error message, I moved the “/opt/local/bin” from the beginning of the PATH to the end as follows:
./lib/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:in `gem_original_require’: no such file to load — rdoc/rdoc (LoadError)
When attempting to install rubygems on a fresh Amazon Web Services EC2 instance I received the below error. Ruby had been installed by default on the instance and I was installing rubygems manually. The below error was received when attempting to run the setup.rb script with ruby.
When attempting to install a gem using cygwin on a Windows XP machine I received the below error. I was hoping I wasn’t going to have to reinstall RubyGems underneath cygwin because it would have just been a pain. I had Ruby installed and operational underneath cygwin but for some reason rubygems was not working. I decided to instead make an alias to point to the gem command that I had installed straight to Windows. Use the below command to add an alias to cygwin to make gem an available command.
Error: ruby.exe: No such file or directory — /cygdrive/c/ruby/bin/gem (LoadError)
To resolve use the below command from your cygwin bash prompt to create an alias for gem. On my laptop Ruby is installed in C:\ruby so the commands are located in C:\ruby\bin.
I am starting to learn ruby and am working on a test script to import some data into a MySQL database. I am using the below code found on kitebird.com to first get the MySQL connection from Ruby working. The code was producing an error which I figured might be because I installed the MySQL Ruby gem instead of installing the MySQL Ruby module from source.
The below code attempts to connect to the MySQL server to return the MySQL server version.
