Up Topic Gosu / Gosu Exchange / Problem for install Gosu
- - By Zohran Date 2015-11-06 22:14
Ello, i'm french, sorry for my bad English.
I have problem when i would like to install Gosu gem file. I never have this problem in past...

Can you please try upgrading Rubygems itself (gem update --system)? gem install should install the right architecture (pre-compiled) even without the --platform parameter, but every few years there is a bug that breaks this logic. Sigh :(

Yes, i do it... but no result :C

Look that:

Ah, I see. Updating Rubygems itself has broken Gosu here too. =( I hope all I have to do to fix this is to release a new gem. Hope to try that tomorrow.

Thanks you very much, i wait that ! :)

The issue is caused by this bug in Rubygems 2.5.0:

To work around the issue, I've pushed a Gosu 0.10.5.pre2 gem that is ONLY available for Windows. So if you run gem install gosu --pre now, gem has no chance but to install the Windows version.

Thanks you very muhc ! I have installed Gosu ! :)

But i have second problem, i have similary bug when i try to install texplay. It's possible to update it?
Parent - - By bestguigui Date 2015-11-11 08:09
Ouch ! Let's hope this will be fixed soon, because texplay and a lot of really good gems are kinda discontinued today... :(
Parent - By jlnr (dev) Date 2015-12-23 08:36
RubyGems has fixed the issue now :)

I don't think there will be a Texplay update anytime soon, and the current gem is only precompiled for 32-bit Ruby on Windows, anyway. In the Rubygems issue thread above, it seems that 32-bit Ruby might be unaffected by the issue altogether.

Does downgrading to a 32-bit Ruby fix everything for you (for now)?
Parent - - By Zohran Date 2015-11-11 10:29
Okay, i have installed 32 bits version of ruby. Thanks for help mans ! :)
But.... T_T
Parent - - By jlnr (dev) Date 2015-11-11 20:47
Does it work if you first install Gosu (with --pre, as before, not with --platform) and then install Texplay?
Parent - - By Zohran Date 2015-11-11 23:09
I have installed gosu with gem install gosu --pre when i have test gem install texplay, but it does'nt work... if I understood what you wanted me to do. :C
Parent - - By jlnr (dev) Date 2015-11-12 09:45
Okay, forget about the pre gem :) It's not going to work for TexPlay.

I forgot that you can just download the .gem files from For example, here is TexPlay for 32-bit Windows:

Just click "Download" in the lower right corner.

Same for Gosu:

Then run gem install <path_of_downloaded_gem> (you can just drag the .gem file from the Explorer into cmd to insert the path). Et voila! :)

Thanks you, it's good !
Parent - By jlnr (dev) Date 2015-12-23 08:37
The issue has been fixed in RubyGems 2.5.1. You can keep the installed 0.10.5.pre2 gem until I release 0.10.5 (hopefully before 2016), and then just gem update gosu to install the normal version.
