Updating ruby os x
However, IIRC, there was a problem with the Leopard install of rubygems, and you need to use the following first : " by itself will attempt to update every gem installed on your system. What happened when you ran it is that at least one of the gems installed on your system relies on an underlying "binary" dependency, meaning code written (most likely) in the C programming language and inteneded to be built into a native binary that the Ruby gem relies on to do the heavy lifting part of its work.
This native code failed to compile, and the gem update aborted because of that.
I find myself with more time, more need, and more desire to learn these again... Originally posted by Catfish: Generally, you'd update gem itself using "sudo gem update --system".
