I'm very confused with a thing. To installing a database as postgresql
in Ruby from Debian/Ubuntu, does the same to using "apt-get install
libpgsql-ruby1.8" than "gem install postgres"? If they are the same,
which is the best?

The PostgreSQL database must be installed separately. The Ruby bindings
for PostgreSQL are provided with Rails.

I mean the ruby library to accessing to the database. I was wrong when
I said the binding database, sorry
