installing an old version of rails with 1.9.1


I am running Ruby 1.9.1 and Rails 2.3.2 and need a copy of Rails 2.3.0
to do some testing on a plugin. I tried

  sudo gem install -v 2.3.0 rails

But I got the following error:

  ERROR: could not find gem rails locally or in a repository

Also I tried to download the v2.3.0 tag from github, but I didn't know
what to do after that, cuz there is no gemspec in the top level

Does anybody know how to do this?

  Thank you,

Actually, Rails 2.3.0 isn’t a official release of Rails. However, it was the first release candidate

of Rails 2.3 and the second release candidate was Rails 2.3.1. The first official release of Rails 2.3

was Rails 2.3.2. Thus, I would highly recommend that you use that as the target for testing the plugin.

Good luck,
