Hello, I recently installed the ruby on rails framework from this tutorial: http://www.hivelogic.com/narrative/articles/ruby_r... So, I installed: Ruby on Rails 1.1 Ruby 1.8.4 LightTPD 1.4.13 FastCGI 2.4.0 RubyGems 0.9.0 Readline 5.1 PCRE 6.6 FastCGI and MySQL bindings I figured out how to keep my ruby on rails up to date by using the command "gem update rails --include-dependencies", but what about all the other stuff? Should I keep checking their website to see if updates are available and then compiling, installiing them? Or is there a quicker command line way to keep all the stuff up to date? Maybe a similar command like the one ruby on rails has. Also, any other tips regarding the maintanance of Ruby on Rails would be much appricated! Thanks in advance!

Hi Kristen, If you *really* need to keep up to date, maybe you should install everything using MacPorts There is an article describing how to 'sandbox' Rails with MacPort in order to have multiple version of your pre-requisites installed. The update process after that is pretty much a simple command, 'sudo port upgrade installed'. You can do many more things with MacPorts, but you will be hard pressed to find documentation for it. Here is the manual from when it was called DarwinPorts.  http://www.macports.org  http://blog.duncandavidson.com/2006/04/sandboxing_rail.html  http://darwinports.opendarwin.org/docs/ch01s04.html -christos
