Rails installation

Reported by vimaladevi | November 18th, 2010 @ 09:47 AM

Hi All

I used the below command to install rails:
gem install rails -v=2.3.8

I got the following errors:
ERROR: does not appear to be a repository
ERROR: Error installing rails:

    rails requires activesupport (= 2.3.8, runtime)

Can anyone help me out to resolve this error?

    Can you please ensure your internet connection is working properly? It could have been an intermittent problem with not being available, you may want to retry running the command again as the command itself seems fine.

    Can you also post your gem version (gem --version) and your operating system. Do you have any ~/.gemrc , if so can you post its content?

    I can assure you that it is working for almost all of us, if it wasnt there would've been a much bigger uproar worldwide, so the problem is more likely local.

    Do you have another system (preferably on another network) where you can retry this?

    I am going to close this out. If you are still having issues with installing Rails let us know. It has been some time since we heard back on this so I am going to assume that you got this working. If not, let us know and we can assist.
