I posted an earlier question but am amending it with this question instead which hopefully gets to the heart of the matter: I'm trying to get from rubygems version 0.9.5 to version 1.2.0 because I believe that 1.3.0 has a possible bug. However when I install 0.9.5 and then do a gem update --system it updates to 1.3.0 because that's the most recent in my remote repository (we use an internal repository, btw). The repository does have 1.2.0. How do I get to version 1.2.0 instead of 1.3.0? Thanks.

Download it manually and install from local file. -- Rados³aw Bu³at http://radarek.jogger.pl - mój blog

Thanks for the response, but the question of "how" was really the heart of my question. I understand that *gems* can be installed locally by using the -l switch, but when I try gem update --system -l [some file name] it does not work and I'm not clear on the difference between gem install rubygems-update-0.9.5.gem and gem update --system and update_rubygems. Am I the only person that finds this confusing? Thanks.
