Could you please give a little more information -- a exact copy of the
error that shows the full LoadError message would be good. What is
needed to help you out is the name of the file that is failing to
load.

There was a recent post talking about similar load issues with FXRuby.
Take a look at that thread for some hints, too. The subject line is
"FXRuby 1.6.4 redux"
