How to install RoR on chrooted environment

Hello,

i have the following setup:
/home/user1/tmp/root_fs/…

under above mentioned directory I have whole important things for my
embedded Linux OS i.e /bin, /etc, /lib, /sbin, /usr etc. I have
installed i.e. lighthttpd, ruby. Unfortunately I have hard time with
installing the gem and the rails.

How to install the rails without the gem? Or how to install the gem in
chrooted fs?

Regards,
FO

[Obvious note] This question is (at least partially) better asked on
Rails-talk group[/Obvious note]

Nevertheless, if you create your application and call rake
:freeze, it will copy all needed rails files to vendor/
directory in your app. Just copy that to your chrooted dir.

I’d suppose that installing gem under chroot is pretty similar to the
normal install, provided you have all the stuff that such installation
requires - that means in this case at least ruby and rubygems.

First of all thank you Jano for the prompt answer.

I have tried this:
$ rails testapp

then:

$ rake rails:freeze:version

but i receive the following output:

“rake aborted!
No Rakefile found (looking for: rakefile, Rakefile, rakefile.rb,
Rakefile.rb)
/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/rake.rb:1934:in `raw_load_rakefile’
(See full trace by running task with --trace)”

Can you pls tell me step-by-step how to do it?

Just a quick hin, I don’t have more time now.

I have tried this:
$ rails testapp

add:

cd testapp

then:

$ rake rails:freeze:version

I.e. find your Rakefile within testapp dir, and go there, or anywhere
below it.

machine:/tmp/testapp$ rake rails:freeze:version
(in /tmp/0/testapp)
rake aborted!
Don’t know how to build task ‘rails:freeze:version’

Should read
rake rails:freeze:gems

type rake -T to get a list of all the rake tasks supplied with rails.

The command “rake rails:freeze:gems” shows the following output:
"(in /tmp/0/testapp)
rake aborted!
undefined method `version’ for nil:NilClass

(See full trace by running task with --trace)"

But i have figured out correct syntax of the comand which works a
expected:

$ rake rails:freeze:edge TAG=rel_1-2-3

Thank you all for help!
