I'm newbie to ruby, and have tried to install pygments.rb for jekyll. Here is log for gem env and gem install something. OS is Windows 8 Pro 64 bit.

You can see what I installed from the shell path from gem env. The interesting point is I installed it successfully through bundler.

With the following Gemfile:

# A sample Gemfile
source ""

# gem "github-pages"
gem "pygments.rb", "0.5.0"

I ran 'bundle install' and found the pygments.rb is installed by running gem list. I'm suspicious of the bundler since I installed it using 'gem install bundler' successfully. But, because I installed many things like devkit for ruby, python, easy-install for python, rubygem(update) after doing that, I'm not sure.

Thanks in advance,

    Why did you cancel the install?

    When you run with --debug all exceptions raised are shown, you probably wanted --verbose.

    Ah... I canceled it since so many exceptions are logged and thought
    something goes wrong. Without --debug and with --verbose, it seems that the
    gem is installed well though there is an error with rdoc and test resource.
    Oh my god, I should have waited with patience.

    Before reporting this, could you check that the file you're documenting
    has proper syntax:

      D:/development/ruby/Ruby193/bin/ruby.exe -c

    RDoc is not a full Ruby parser and will fail when fed invalid ruby programs.

    The internal error was:

    If you run bundler like ruby -d -S bundle you will see similar exception messages, as that is what debug mode is for.

    For the rdoc error, please file a report at the rdoc issue tracker
