RubyGems 1.2+ Index not found, gems fail to install/update slow/sluggish

I had this problem while running sudo gem install anything, like sudo gem install sqlite3-ruby or what not, albeit while running Ubuntu in VirtualBox. The fix that worked for me was editing /etc/resolv.conf and using google’s public dns nameservers of 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

Now it works fine… Go figure.
