How can i make /usr/bin & ~/.gem since /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8 both writable so I can use Rubygems?
I have updated my path using.
[sayth@localhost 1.8]$ export PATH=/home/sayth/.gem/ruby/1.8/bin:$PATH
But still receive this error when attempting to installing gems.
[sayth@localhost 1.8]$ gem install rails
WARNING: Installing to ~/.gem since /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8 and
/usr/bin aren't both writable.
ERROR: Error installing rails:
bundler requires RubyGems version >= 1.3.6
I know nothing about Rubygems but it seems that you are trying to install as your ordinary user. Usually only root can write to the /usr directory and its subdirectories.
The conflicting versions are probably a different problem.
