via Tools -> Ruby Gems I always get stuck and given this message (see
What could be the problem here? Also, I noticed that Netbeans installs

jruby -S gem install mysql

…you might e.g. set GEM_HOME (in Ruby Platform Manager) to:
and move this repo to other machine and point the GEM_HOME on that
machine to it.
Thanks for the reply, I will try that.
