Hi,

I can't seem to get rid of an old pre-rubygems 1.0 sys-uname gem:

gem env

RubyGems Environment:
  - RUBYGEMS VERSION: 1.1.1
  - RUBY VERSION: 1.8.6 (2007-09-24 patchlevel 111) [i386-mswin32]
  - INSTALLATION DIRECTORY: c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8
  - RUBY EXECUTABLE: c:/ruby/bin/ruby.exe
  - RUBYGEMS PLATFORMS:
    - ruby
    - x86-mswin32-60
  - GEM PATHS:
     - c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8
  - GEM CONFIGURATION:
     - :update_sources => true
     - :verbose => true
     - :benchmark => false
     - :backtrace => false
     - :bulk_threshold => 1000
  - REMOTE SOURCES:
     - http://gems.rubyforge.org

C:\>gem uninstall sys-uname

Select gem to uninstall:
 1. sys-uname-0.8.1-x86-mswin32
 2. sys-uname-0.8.3
 3. All versions
> 1
INFO:  In order to remove sys-uname, please execute:
        gem uninstall sys-uname --install-dir=c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8

C:\>gem uninstall sys-uname --install-dir=c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8

Select gem to uninstall:
 1. sys-uname-0.8.1-x86-mswin32
 2. sys-uname-0.8.3
 3. All versions
> 1
INFO:  In order to remove sys-uname, please execute:
        gem uninstall sys-uname --install-dir=c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8

I guess it's getting confused by the lack of the '-60' on the platform.

Regards,

Dan
