I'm on WinXP, Ruby 1.8.5, Gems 0.9. I'm trying to install a gem that depends on other gems, all doing this locally without an internet connection. The Rails gem is a good example and the one that I'm experimenting with. First I downloaded the Rails-related gems: C:\dev\gems>dir Volume in drive C has no label. Volume Serial Number is 14E7-0D73 Directory of C:\dev\gems 01/10/2007 02:19 PM <DIR> . 01/10/2007 02:19 PM <DIR> .. 11/28/2006 03:50 PM 81,920 actionmailer-1.2.5.gem 11/28/2006 03:50 PM 530,432 actionpack-1.12.5.gem 11/28/2006 03:51 PM 67,072 actionwebservice-1.1.6.gem 11/28/2006 03:50 PM 349,696 activerecord-1.14.4.gem 11/28/2006 03:50 PM 49,152 activesupport-1.3.1.gem 11/28/2006 03:51 PM 144,896 rails-1.1.6.gem 6 File(s) 1,223,168 bytes And then I tried to install the rails gem, telling it to install all the other gems too, and only use the local machine from which to find the dependencies: C:\dev\gems>gem install rails-1.1.6.gem --include-dependencies --local ERROR: Error installing gem rails-1.1.6.gem[.gem]: rails requires activesupport = 1.3.1 I don't know why I'm getting this error. I'm assuming that --local means it should just look on the local machine, or is that wrong? Or is there a more obvious/easier way to do this? I'm tired of installing each gem one at a time :-) But more importantly I'm just trying to learn the rules about how the Gems installer works. Any ideas? Thanks! Jeff

Besides that, it's possible that an easier way exists.
