Typo in gem dependencies: uuidtoolds

Reported by Karthic Kumaran | May 21st, 2013 @ 12:24 AM

While installing aws(2.9.0) gem it fails saying that it can't find uuidtoolds(>=0).

I think this is a typo and the actual dependency is "uuidtools" not "uuidtoolds".

    Someone could publish a gem to rubygems.org named uuidtoolds. I'm fixing my aws release to 2.8.0 as a workaround.

    I published a gem named uuidtoolds that will not install (bad runtime dependencies). Just trying to close up this hole.

    I manually copied uuidtools gem and changed its name, so far i have no issues running the deltacloud gem which uses aws.

    These are the steps that i took(Ubuntu 12.04),
    1. gem install xml-simple http_connection uuidtools

    2. gem install –-ignore-dependencies aws
    3. cp –R /var/lib/gems/1.9.1/gems/uuidtools-2.1.4 /var/lib/gems/1.9.1/gems/uuidtoolds-2.1.4
    4. cp –R /var/lib/gems/1.9.1/specifications/uuidtools-2.1.4.gemspec /var/lib/gems/1.9.1/specifications/uuidtoolds-2.1.4.gemspec
    5. Edit /var/lib/gems/1.9.1/specifications/uuidtoolds-2.1.4.gemspec and change s.name=”uuidtools” to s.name=”uuidtoolds”
