Hi all,

In attempting to install the rails3 rc, i came across the error in the subject line.

rvm 0.1.43
ruby 1.9.1p378
gem -v: 1.3.7

$gem install rails --pre $ rails -v /Users/gsaravia/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.1-p378/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.9.1/rubygems/requirement.rb:72:in `parse': Illformed requirement ["pre"] (ArgumentError)


any help appreciated, thanks.

    Yeah...that doesn't sound right. Does this work on 1.9.2? AFAIK Rails 3 doesn't support 1.9.1, I might be mistaken though.
