Hi, I'm creating RPM packages for: - opinion (which includes Rails) - ruby 1.8.4 - mongrel - rake - gem_plugin - ruby-postgres (I want to install opinion using postgres on a RHEL system that doesn't have internet access) Do these things need rubygems also installed? Am i going to be breaking things (i.e. mongrel) if I don't use rubygems? Thanks, Joe

I know I've installed Mongrel without gems in the past.

Joe, Yes, Mongrel uses a little tiny chunk of code called GemPlugins to allow others to extend Mongrel without having to make me add the code in. It's already spawned Bradley Taylor's mongrel_cluster plugin which is helping many people do clustered deployments. Not including RubyGems would break this and pretty much be like disabling modules in Apache. Zed A. Shaw http://www.zedshaw.com/ http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/
