Ruby/Rake install error on SiriProxy

Hello all,

I am trying to install the Siri Proxy program located at

I am running an LFS system so I'm guessing there's something missing, but I'm not familiar enough with Ruby to understand exactly what is wrong. I've never written anything in Ruby myself.

I executed all of the following commands without any problems:

bash < <(curl -s
[[ -s "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" ]] && . "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm"
echo '[[ -s "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" ]] && . "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" # Load RVM function' >> ~/.bash_profile
rvm install 1.9.3
rvm use 1.9.3 --default 
rvmsudo gem install rake bundler
git clone git://
cd SiriProxy
The next command I'm supposed to execute is:

rake install
However, upon doing so, I receive the following error:

server [ ~/SiriProxy ]$ rake install
rake aborted!
cannot load such file -- bundler/gem_tasks

(See full trace by running task with --trace)
All of the advice I've found online refers to Ubuntu and using apt-get. This is of little use to me running an LFS system. There are questions on forums that have no answers.

There is no file "gem_tasks" anywhere on my system either, nor do I really know where it's looking for it. There's no file "bundler/gem_tasks" in the Git repository.

Anyone know what I might be missing?

IT would appear the instructions are wrong.

After deep research I found out you need to be using "rvm all do" for all of the commands you run under the Ruby environment. I executed "rvm all do rake install" and it succeeded. I was also able to directly start the siriproxy binary with "rvm all do ./bin/siriproxy".

I hope this helps anyone else who's having this problem!
