Newbie: installing rails on standalone pc

("Peña, Botp") #1

Hi All,

How do i install rails to a pc that does not have an internet/network connection?

The rails site only mentions gem installation. Is that the only way to go?

i was thinking: Maybe i should copy the gem db fr a connected pc and save it to a usb. And then use gem fr the standalone pc to point to that db. I am not sure really on how if ever this works.

Pointers and tips, pls.

kind regards -botp

you could download rails gem and its dependencies, then install them locally.
gem install --local --include-dependencies rails
ps. You better join rails maillist, there are so many helpful
developers there ..

Why don't you simply get the .tar.gz?
