HowTo Install Redmine on Solaris¶
Easiest is probably to use http://www.opencsw.org solaris packages for the basic Ruby and rubygems infrastructure, and then install the remaining parts in a local home directory.

pkg-get install ruby rake rubygems
You'll also want Ruby drivers for you databases, which are in one of these packages:
- libpgsql-ruby for PostgreSQL
Configure your user environment¶
As an individual user, edit your ~/.bashrc file and add a line such as this:
Log out and back on. Make sure your GEM_PATH is set:

Now, install rails:
gem install -i $GEM_PATH rails -y
Then proceed to the RedmineInstall instructions.
If you will be running this under FastCGI or some other environment, make sure the GEM_PATH gets passed along.
