Hi ... i've been trying to get rails up and running on my system. I run
OS X leopard. updated ruby to 1.8.7. Installed ruby 1.9 with a suffix
following this guide (http://ruby.tie-rack.org/28/installing-19/)

So I checked what rails version I had ... turns out to be 1.2.6 *iiiiik*

Quickly typed the following:

mbp:~ spobo$ gem update rails -v

And got this awesome result.

Updating installed gems
GET 302 Found: http://gems.rubyforge.org/latest_specs.4.8.gz
GET 200 OK:
http://guide.opendns.com/?url=gems.rubyforge.org%2Flatest_specs.4.8.gz&servfail
ERROR:  While executing gem ... (Zlib::GzipFile::Error)
    not in gzip format
mbp:~ spobo$

so ... anyone have any clues? I'm sort of really stumped as to what goes
where when you compile programs like ruby as to what goes where and how
do you tweak/uninstall it when necessary.

ps:

mbp:~ spobo$ sudo gem update --system
Updating RubyGems
ERROR:  While executing gem ... (Zlib::GzipFile::Error)
    not in gzip format

ps2: yes, I know I'm not using ruby 1.9 when I do the simple gem command
and no, gem19 install rails and gem19 update --system do the same.
