First of all, let me thank you guys for making and supporting
the gems packaging system
I am trying to install a gem called rbtree. On cygwin, I did gem
install rbtree and the gem process reported no errors. Even so,
when trying "require 'rbtree'", ruby reported that it couldnt find
such file rbtree.
After lots of researching I couldnt find help. I then tweaked and
found that the requirement "require
'/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/rbtree-0.3.0/rbtree'" worked, although
several warnings about .so fi,les replacing methods were
Thinking that cygwin were not supported, I tooke the time to
install a fresh (really fresh) ubuntu virtual machine using virtual
box. After installing ruby 1.9 (ruby --version reports 1.9.3) and
ruby gems, and testing with irb, I them did "gem install rbtree"
and again the process did not report any errors. Even so, when
doing "require 'rbtree'", still it couldnt find such file
So I really think something is going wrong and that its related to
gem somehow not knowing where to search for gems or the make system
of rbtree putting files in the wrong place. But then I am again
lost. I wouldnt like to full qualify every require to use gems,
cinse putting stuff and new environments would be very hard. What
can I do to fix this?

rbtree probably requires a C compiler, which probably isn't
setup properly. I'd check out http://railsinstaller.org/ to get
started on Windows.
This isn't a support forum for RubyGems itself, please post
issues like this in the future to StackOverflow.
