gems is a kind of packet manager for ruby’s 3rd party application. we
can download rails with that. but i can download it with that. is
there any other solution?

Hi, you’ll need to download the sources from github.com. For example,
you’ll need to do the following:

$ git clone git://gitbub.com/rails/rails.git
$ cd rails
$ git submodule init
$ git submodule update
$ sudo rake install
$ rails -v

However, I would recommend embracing gems for the installation of 3rd
pary Ruby packages. Why? It simply makes life much easier for both
development and deployment. However, in the end, it’s your choice and
I wish you all the best.

Good luck,

well… thanks for the advice… :smiley:
