Hi folks,

I'm new to the list. I've not been too active with Ruby for the last couple years (I've been Squeaking instead),
but just wanted to try out Rubygems and Pimki.

I just downloaded rubygems 0.8.4, and had a problem using it:


$ sudo gem install Pimki
Attempting local installation of 'Pimki'
Local gem file not found: Pimki*.gem
Attempting remote installation of 'Pimki'
Successfully installed Pimki, version 1.3.092
/usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:26:in `require': No such file to load -- rdoc/rdoc (LoadError)
        from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/doc_manager.rb:42:in `generate_rdoc'
        from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/gem_commands.rb:175:in `execute'
        from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/gem_commands.rb:174:in `each'
        from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/gem_commands.rb:174:in `execute'
        from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/gem_commands.rb:129:in `each'
        from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/gem_commands.rb:129:in `execute'
        from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/command.rb:49:in `invoke'
        from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/cmd_manager.rb:90:in `process_args'
        from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/cmd_manager.rb:63:in `run'
        from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/gem_runner.rb:9:in `run'
        from /usr/bin/gem:11
$ locate '*rdoc/rdoc*'
$

I have a Debian Linux system, with Ruby 1.8.2 installed. In my case, I needed to install the 'rdoc1.8' package.

Perhaps Rubygems should install rdoc if it needs it?

Thanks,
