#1

Hi,

i am a newbie. i don’t have internet connetion at home.
so all i can do is, i can download individually in internet browsing
centre
and install on my home pc.
currently i am using fedora core 6.
i don’t know how to download individual jems file.

it would be great, if any one of you can summaries the steps to install
ruby
and rails on linux.

Hi Ashok,

  RoR is a framework for developing web-server based applications. 

If
you don’t have an internet connection, I am puzzled as to what
the point is – RoR on a PC without an internet connection is kind of
like a
motorboat in the middle of the Sahara desert – what would
you do with it?

Dennis,
I do not think it is al atll necessary for you to be connected to teh
internet to develop a web application, just to deploy it

Hi Chris,

 Good point.  I was a little surprised at the question, and fired 

off a
response w/o thinking it through. However, developing standalone, while
possible, makes it difficult to test for things like – how well will it
scale to 500+ concurrent users, and - its this UI clearly understandable
to
anyone besides the original author?

Depends what you mean by “standalone package”.

This could be a gem (xxx.gem) or a package for your native Linux version
(e.g. .deb for Ubuntu, .rpm for fedora)

If it’s a gem, then you must have rubygems installed first, then you use
“gem install” to install it. At this point you may discover that this
gem
depends on other gems to install, so you’ll end up going back into work
to
get those too :slight_smile:

If it’s a native package, then use the appropriate native package
installation tool (dpkg, rpm etc). You’ll have a similar dependency
issue.

Might be easier to bring your PC into work :slight_smile:

Regards,

Brian.

yes, i agree.

and as i suspected, rake gem should be installed separately on linux,
then only you can install rails gem file.

not all gems are web-centric.
Though many are.
