Gems

gem install <gemname>

if it breaks, try to do:

gem install

if it still breaks, try to do:

irb
require 'rubygems'
gem 'myproblemgem', '1.0.0'

then look at the problem.

Example

for example this session shows that the "echoe" gem is not installed. When running script/server:

/usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:in `require'
script/server:3
Missing these required gems:
  capistrano-ext  = 1.2.1

You're running:
  ruby 1.8.7.22 at /usr/local/bin/ruby
  rubygems 1.2.0 at /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8

Run `rake gems:install` to install the missing gems.

well... indeed Captistrano-ext IS installed:

$ ls -ald /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/cap*
drwxr-xr-x   12 root  wheel  408 Jan 20 12:11 /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/capistrano-2.5.3
drwxr-xr-x    9 root  wheel  306 Jan 20 13:00 /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/capistrano-ext-1.2.1


but running the code with irb gives more details:

$ irb
>> require 'rubygems'
=> false
>> gem 'capistrano-ext', '1.2.1'
Gem::LoadError: Could not find RubyGem echoe (>= 0)

        from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:578:in `report_activate_error'
        from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:134:in `activate'
        from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:158:in `activate'
        from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:157:in `each'
        from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:157:in `activate'
        from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:158:in `activate'
        from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:157:in `each'
        from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:157:in `activate'
        from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:158:in `activate'
        from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:157:in `each'
        from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:157:in `activate'
        from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:49:in `gem'
        from (irb):2

So a simple:

# gem install echoe
Successfully installed echoe-3.0.2
1 gem installed
Installing ri documentation for echoe-3.0.2...
Installing RDoc documentation for echoe-3.0.2...

fixed the problem... well... you get the idea: there's a broken dependency in captistrano-ext for echoe....

Running script/server

Usually with:

ruby script/server

It seems that some application (BORT?) work with Mongrel but not with WEBrick. You can do a simple:

gem install mongrel

To install.... then check http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/
