Hi

This might not be the right question to ask at such a high tech group
but as i want to learn it, i have to ask it somewhere.

I have ruby 1.8.6 patch 111 and gem 1.0.1

now i want wxruby2 but as the 'gem install wxruby2' tries to install
from http://rubyforge.org, it timed out.
I can see the files on http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=35. Can i
download the tar files and install it locally?
How? because i dont want to leave it to network to do it.......i know
it sound wierd but i can download the files but unable to install.

Need a way to install offline using a file wxruby2 and wxsugar

Yes, you can. Simply, give gem the path of the file you downloaded,
instead of
just the gem name:

gem install /path/to/downloaded/wxruby-something.gem

I hope this helps

I'm not sure I understand you correctly. I did the following:

* downloaded the file wxruby-1.9.10-x86-linux.gem from
http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=35&release_id=31089 and put it into
/home/stefano/downloads

* issued the command
  gem install /home/stefano/downloads/wxruby-1.9.10-x86-linux.gem

This installed wxruby-1.9.19 without having gem trying to connect to the
web.
If you want to absolutely sure of this, you can also pass the --local
command
line option to gem, but it shouldn't be necessary.

By the way, referring to the other mail you posted, you can't install
the
tar.gz file you found on rubyforge using rubygems. If you want to use
that,
you'll need to install it manually.
