Description Tomas Danek 2009-08-21 09:06:18 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 200908171401)
Java: 1.5.0_19; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 1.5.0_19-137
System: Mac OS X version 10.5.8 running on i386; MacRoman; en_US (nb)
Userdir: /Users/tomas/.netbeans/dev
- open Ruby platform manager
- choose native ruby
- hit "install fast debugger"
--> installation fails, gem needs to write to /usr/bin. 

Bulk updating Gem source index for:
ERROR:  While executing gem ... (Gem::FilePermissionError)
    You don't have write permissions into the /usr/bin directory.

would be nice to have something similar like on linux - to invoke "sudo dialog" and run gem command as root.
Comment 1 Martin Krauskopf 2009-08-21 10:34:57 UTC
This is being solved in issue #128575. Mac still unsolved, since it is (or seems to be) a harder case (no gksu by
default, see the #128575). If you have any insight please comment in the #128575. Thanks.
