i have got my laptop for making apps in ror but im just wondering when i
setup my server to run it do i install ruby irb gems, or do i just
install ruby as this will be only to run it.

ps. what others bits do it need to install for mysql to work with ruby
etc.

thanks

Irb is only required if you want to run the Rails console. You don't
need it to run the server. (But I recommend installing irb anyway,
because the console is very useful.)

Well, you'll need the appropriate mysql library...I'm not sure at this
point what that is, since I avoid mySQL.

thanks

Best,
