Having issues creating a Ruby gem using bundler

I tried creating a ruby gem called ransel_palindrome but I keep getting this error at the terminal.


I uses GIT BASH on windows 11

$ `bundle gem ransel_palindrome`
Creating gem 'ransel_palindrome'...
Do you want to generate tests with your gem?
Future `bundle gem` calls will use your choice. This setting can be changed anytime with `bundle config gem.test`.

Errno::EBADF: Bad file descriptor

That’s definitely not all of the stack trace. Please post the whole stack trace.

Are you on windows? What do you use to manage your Ruby versions?

This is all the trace from my Git Bash terminal

$ bundle gem ransel_palindrome

Yes I am on windows and I haven’t install any RVM yet. So far I have only a version of Ruby installed.

Hope this helps

OK I think I see what’s happening. I don’t use Window but let’s try this, open your command prompt as administrator (right click > run as admin) then do bundle gem ransel_palindrome as superuser (root). Also I don’t think you need the backticks(`) around the command.

I did this but same feedback.

Did you do it with PowerShell?

Hahaha. It WORKED when I used PowerShell. Thanks so much bossman. This Git Bash gave me tough time. :smile:

btw, I’ll advise you partition your HDD and install Ubuntu or any other Linux distro, your life will be easier with development. Windows is really really sh*t for this kind of stuff.

That’s very true. Always having a tough time

I am using Ubuntu on a hypervisor. I only uses it for practicing but not development. I’m working on a new Desktop so it’ll be strictly Ubuntu or any other distro
