Rubygems 0.9.5 and fastthread mswin32 gem

Is there a binary gem for fastthread on windows?

gem install fastthread on windows tries to compile with rather
unpleasant consequences.
I guess fastthread compilation is done with the VC6.0 tools, cause my
VS2005 installation crashes and burns:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC>gem install fastthread
Building native extensions. This could take a while...
ERROR: Error installing fastthread:

Anyone got an idea?

Yes, there is.

RubyGems 0.9.5 is broken for mswin32.

This was reported here, in mongrel mailing list and all over the web.

gem install is trying to install the ruby version of all these gems
since "think" there is no match for 'mswin32' platform.

All that was fixed on RubyGems trunk but still no official release of
"0.9.5.1" to fix it.

You can use a different compiler than the one use to build ruby. You
need to build ruby with VS2005.

That's another story, the bottom line is: rubygems shouldn't be asking

Revert to RubyGems 0.9.4 for the time being and this problem will go
away.

(I know is not your fault, but I'm really getting tired of repeat
myself all over again).

HTH,

Luis

I can undertsand that . I guess I can get the binary gem and install
locally.
The problem is that reverting to 0.9.4 brings up a different problem
that I have with one of my own gems.
When I do a gem install or gem update rutema with 0.9.4 a list pops up
with the available versions.
Now the old versions (build with Hoe) have ruby as a platform. The new
versions (posted yesterday) have no platform set (empty parenthesis).
If I choose any of the new versions I get a 404 error from gem. Note
that this happens only on windows, on my mac everything works fine.
Everything is built with Hoe so it must be something that happened
during the upgrade of either rubygems or hoe.
Once I upgraded to rubygems 0.9.5 the problem went away.
Now it might be that because I built the gems on a system with 0.9.5
there is some kind of incompatibility with 0.9.4
I honestly don't have the time to look into it though
Cheers,
V.-

Hoe set the platform to the gem specification to Gem:latform::RUBY
by default, so if this was packaged in the gem as empty string or
rubygems being unable to 'parse' the platform rutema gem is set could
be a bug in rubygems itself.

You should report this situation in RubyGems tracker:

http://rubyforge.org/tracker/?group_id=126

Me neither

A lot of folks didn't roll the upgrade to 0.9.5, and some of those who
made it revert back to 0.9.4...

I suggest you recreate these gems with 0.9.4 and ask Tom (at Rubyforge
support) to help you resync them on the mirrors replacing the old and
broken ones.

Regards.

Luis

I have the same problem, but i am using 0.9.4.
I've tried gem install fastthread and choose the mswin32 version, didn't
work, it tried to compile.
I've even downloaded the gem manually and tried to install it, but it
still tried to compile it.
Any clue what could be going on here?
