Can't install rails 2.1.0 using gem

Reported by Satanir | July 4th, 2008 @ 11:08 AM | in 2.x

When trying to install rails using 'gem install rails' I get the following error:

ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::InstallError)

invalid gem format for c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/cache/activesupport-2.1.0.gem

I downloaded the active support gem manually from and placed it the gems cached directory.

That solved the problem. Looks like a repository issue.
