Description pupeno 2009-09-23 06:51:34 UTC
When I try to install any gems as the last part of creation of a Rails project which I never managed to create, I get
this error:

JRuby limited openssl loaded. gem install jruby-openssl for full support.
ERROR:  While executing gem ... (Errno::ENOENT)
    No such file or directory - No such file or directory - C:/Users/J. Pablo Fern�ndez

Of course my name is not J. Pablo Fern�ndez, it's J. Pablo Fernández.

Hi, probably an issue with spaces in path, installing NB to a directory w/o spaces in the path likely helps. I'm not 
sure we can do anything about this in NB (it's a JRuby issue). In any case, to be sure, could you please turn on 
detailed logging (, reproduce the problem and attach the log here then. 
Thanks in advance.

Hello Emononen,

Thanks for looking into it. I already spent 4 hours today creating another account with no special characters on it and
moving everything to it and learning that in Windows it's not a trivial task, at least, if you are a Windows newbie like
me. That means that I can't go back and try it. Sorry.

More than the white spaces, the problem looked like the a with acute: á which was interpreted as ASCII at some point.
What a surprise coming from Ruby!
