Rubygems/format (LoadError)


#1

I updated three of my boxes to the latest rubygems and chef (11.4.0) and now I’m getting the following missing package error:

chef-client

I’ve confirmed that I have rubygems/format.rb

locate rubygems/format.rb

The question becomes, why isn’t chef able to find it?

The latest ruby gems is 2.0, which has breaking changes. If you really really need ruby gems 2.0, you can build from this branch: https://github.com/opscode/chef/pull/654

I do not need the latest! Whoops. Is there a way to go back to the last rubygems < 2.0 ?

#4

According to gem list rubygems-update -r -a, version 1.8.25 is the last one before 2.0.

To downgrade to that, do gem update --system 1.8.25. You can also use that command to upgrade from older rubygems without going all the way to 2.0 (assuming you’re not starting from a version of ruby gems that’s too old to have that feature–I don’t remember when it was added).

HTH,
