What would you like to do?
Can't "gem install bundler" under rvm
On RHEL 5.2, I can't do various bundler-related things under "rvm use 1.9.2-p180@rails". works fine under "rvm system". Where should I look for cause?
% rvm system
% gem install bundler # works
% rvm use 1.9.2-p180@rails
% gem install bundler
ERROR: Loading command: install (LoadError)
no such file to load -- zlib
ERROR: While executing gem ... (NameError)
uninitialized constant Gem::Commands::InstallCommand
Google led me to stack overflow:
% yum install zlib zlib1g zlib1g-dev # googled advice, for ubuntu
Package zlib - 1.2.3-3.x86_64 is already installed.
Package zlib - 1.2.3-3.i386 is already installed.
No package zlib1g available.
No package zlib1g-dev available.
Nothing to do
Since it works under "rvm system," this doesn't seem compellingly explanatory,but maybe?

OK, some progress: under 'rvm system', irb can find zlib, but under "rvm use 1.9.2-p180@rails" it can't
