I'm on WinXP, Ruby 1.8.5, Gems 0.9.

I'm trying to install a gem that depends on other gems, all doing this
locally without an internet connection.  The Rails gem is a good
example and the one that I'm experimenting with.

First I downloaded the Rails-related gems:

C:\dev\gems>dir
 Volume in drive C has no label.
 Volume Serial Number is 14E7-0D73

 Directory of C:\dev\gems

01/10/2007  02:19 PM    <DIR>          .
01/10/2007  02:19 PM    <DIR>          ..
11/28/2006  03:50 PM            81,920 actionmailer-1.2.5.gem
11/28/2006  03:50 PM           530,432 actionpack-1.12.5.gem
11/28/2006  03:51 PM            67,072 actionwebservice-1.1.6.gem
11/28/2006  03:50 PM           349,696 activerecord-1.14.4.gem
11/28/2006  03:50 PM            49,152 activesupport-1.3.1.gem
11/28/2006  03:51 PM           144,896 rails-1.1.6.gem
               6 File(s)      1,223,168 bytes



And then I tried to install the rails gem, telling it to install all
the other gems too, and only use the local machine from which to find
the dependencies:

C:\dev\gems>gem install rails-1.1.6.gem --include-dependencies --local

ERROR:  Error installing gem rails-1.1.6.gem[.gem]: rails requires
activesupport = 1.3.1

I don't know why I'm getting this error.

I'm assuming that --local means it should just look on the local
machine, or is that wrong?

Or is there a more obvious/easier way to do this?  I'm tired of
installing each gem one at a time :-)  But more importantly I'm just
trying to learn the rules about how the Gems installer works.

Any ideas?  Thanks!

You can pass more gems on  the commandline, you'll need to pass them
in the correct order, however (from the least dependent to the most
dependent ones).

Besides that, it's possible that an easier way exists.

RubyGems doesn't currently support this.  I've got it scheduled for
0.9.2.
