Can someone please explain to me if there is any reason not to freeze
your install to a particular version of rails?
It’s a matter of personal choice and disk space only. I assume you
meant to freeze Radiant because it includes Rails in its package.
Does rails run faster if it’s run from gem? or local vendor directory?
They’re both directories, so the speed is the same, essentially.
I also notice it has it’s own rails install… Wouldn’t it be better
to just run from the latest rails gem on hand? or make the gem
dependant on rails gem vx.x.x?
No. We tossed this one around and decided that to reduce
incompatibilities and issues with people lacking root access, etc, we
would package Rails along with Radiant. It saves a lot of headaches,
even though the gem size is larger.
If it’s faster to use locally installed gems how do I force Radiant
not to use it’s bundled version of Rails?
See above. However, if a newer bug-fix release of Rails comes out (i.e.
1.2.4, 1.2.5, etc) the trunk version will probably be updated to it soon
