What I can do to install rail?
The gem installable with only this:
ruby --disable-gems setup.rb
But I don’t know how to install the rails.
This is very disturbing thing. I want to use only RedMine, it needs
is not that rails is hard to install , is that rails moves fast, it does
have the constrains we are used to with other frameworks, rails is open
source, gems are free
and is easy to learn , so rails changes fast, if you read a book or a
tutorial today it may not be useful in a month. Other technologies are
sedentary because they take much more time to learn , expensive ,
proprietary and to get advice you have to pay an “expert”. Since
windows related is sedentary so windows is not ideal for rails.
I solved the problem. But very hard to install redmine to Windows.
First: the ruby must be 1.8.7
Next: the gem is in installer is the only gem what usable for it.
And: the rails must be a specific version.
And: because of Windows, all of the gem installations (for example:
mongrel) needs to define platform, because there is no make in
And: use mysql than pgsql.
Thanks for your help:
