Summary: Centralized Ruby extension management system

Use Flags

Install support for the rubygems server



this is a rough draft, and may need revision.

Rubygems is a package management system to extend the ruby language.

Gems are packaged wonky in portage so this page will explain how to work with rubygems rather than fight it. Arch wiki outlines a similar method.

Emerge ruby & rubygems:

#emerge ruby rubygems

Remove bunk gems:

#emerge -c dev-ruby/rake dev-ruby/racc dev-ruby/json dev-ruby/rdoc

Flush bunk gems bad specs:

#mv /usr/local/lib64/ruby/gems/2.1.0/specifications/ /usr/local/lib64/ruby/gems/2.1.0/specifications.backup

Fetch gems via rubygems:

#gem install rdoc rubygems-update

update gem system:

#gem update --system
#gem pristine --all

Now you're ready to use gem to manage gems. The reason this came about is that bundler can't be run with out conflicts.
