doesn't allow for homedir installation of gems in maverick version
You received this bug notification because you are subscribed to Ubuntu.
Status in “libgems-ruby” package in Ubuntu: New
Running on a lucid machine, upgraded just the rubygems packages to maverick to gain some of the rubygems.org related functionality. I now get an error when I try to install without sudo:
ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::FilePermissionError)
You don't have write permissions into the /var/lib/gems/1.8 directory.
In the lucid version of the package, it would just install to my $HOME/.gems if I didn't run gem as root or via sudo.
