Bundler Freezes on "Fetching source index"

13 Nov 2010

In order to resolve this, first follow the Bundler troubleshooting instructions:

https://github.com/carlhuda/bundler/blob/master/ISSUES.md

Next, if you're using rvm then it might make sense to delete and recreate your gemset, just in case. However, neither of these actions fixed my problem alone. What I needed to do was look at my Gemfile and make it a bit more sensible to help bundler resolve all of my dependencies. From this:

source :rubygems

# common gems here

group :development, :test, :cucumber do
end

group :test, :cucumber do
end

group :test do
end

group :cucumber do
end

To this:

source :rubygems

# common gems here

group :development, :test, :cucumber do
end

group :test, :cucumber do
end

By using less group combinations, bundler has less work to do and doesn't get stuck sorting out what gems you want to install.
