Gem Mirror Yaml file

Hi everyone,

I’m trying to build a local gem mirror following this tutorial :
http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/content/submitted/ruby_http.jsp

I do not succeed building the index (gem generate_index) (lake of
virtual memory)

I have some questions :

Is the building of the index mandatory for creating a gem mirror?

When I try to add newly created local mirror to my gem env I’ve got an
error.

gem source -a http://192.168.0.15/

something like “gem is trying to get specs.4.8.gz, but this file doesn’t
exists.”

I’ve tryed to download this file from http://rubygems.org/specs.4.8.gz
and then, put it on my server, but then, it’s failling on a missing
“yaml” file.

What is the “specs.4.8.gz” and “yaml” files?

Another question : what is the Marshal.4.8 file on the root of the gem
mirror?

gem help generate_index
