----------------------------------------
On a fresh Debian GNU/Linux VServer guest running the latest RVM HEAD I experienced the following error:

```
Exception `LoadError' at /usr/local/rvm/rubies/ruby-2.1.0/lib/ruby/2.1.0/resolv.rb:169 - LoadError
Exception `Errno::EAFNOSUPPORT' at /usr/local/rvm/rubies/ruby-2.1.0/lib/ruby/2.1.0/resolv.rb:744 - Address family not supported by protocol - socket(2) - udp
ERROR: While executing gem ... (Errno::EAFNOSUPPORT)
Address family not supported by protocol - socket(2) - udp
```
(Please see gist below for entire stacktrace).

After discussion on irc.freenode.org #rvm with mpapis (rvm maintainer) it turns out

```
 rvm rubygems latest-2.0
```

fixes the issue.  ```rvm rubygems head``` did not work.

Not quite sure what went wrong here and if this affects anyone who isn't running vserver.
