when running gem install -v 1.8.15 rubygems-update $$ update_rubygems on Ruby 1.9.3

I receive the following errors:

ERROR:  Loading command: install (LoadError)
    cannot load such file -- zlib
ERROR:  While executing gem ... (NameError)
    uninitialized constant Gem::Commands::InstallCommand

Can someone help me solve this "cannot load such file -- zlib" error? Or straighten me out, if what I am trying to do does not make sense....thx.

Is this ROS related?

Please ask this question on a forum for ruby support. This site is focused on ROS questions and answers. @gvdhoorn You can close these sort of questions yourself.

@tfoote: I know I can, but I wanted to give @kherrscher the opportunity to update his question in case it was actually ROS related,

@gvdhoorn I would like to give more time, the problem is that we're building up a backlog of unanswered questions and although it's nicer to give an opportunity to edit the question, it doubles or triples the moderator load to comment, wait, check for updates, and then close or answer question.
