One option is to install rsync on your source box, it's available via Sunfreeware - Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) for Sun Microsystem's Solaris (make sure you also get the dependancies if you dont have them)

If that is too much trouble and you have heaps of free diskspace on the source box (and dest box) you can tar the filesystem to a file, move it to source and extract there:

source % cd /unix/source
source % tar cf /scratch/source.tar .
source % rcp /scratch/source.tar dest:/scratch/source.tar
dest % cd /linux/source
dest % tar xf /scratch/source.tar

Otherwise, you could transfer the tar over ssh and extract all in one. Make sure you can connect first with something like source % ssh linux_box id
source % cd /unix/source
source % tar cf - . | ssh linux_box 'cd /linux/source ; tar xf -'

gem2deb - converts Rubygems' .gem file into Debian package SYNOPSIS
gem2deb [OPTIONS] GEMNAME (to download the gem with gem fetch) gem2deb [OPTIONS] GEMFILE (to use a local .gem file) DESCRIPTION
gem2deb converts the gem into a Debian source package, and then will attempt to build it. The process is made of several steps. First, gem2deb converts the gem file to a tar.gz archive containing a metadata.yml file with the Gem specification. This is equivalent to what gem2tgz does. Then, gem2deb unpacks the tar.gz archive and prepares a Debian source package, guess many of the defaults from the files included in the archive, or the Gem specification. This is equivalent to what dh-make-ruby does. gem2deb cannot determine all parameters for obvious reasons. It is recommended to search for the "FIXME" string in the debian/ directory. The generated Debian source package uses dh_ruby to build the package. Finally, gem2deb tries to build the source and binary packages using dpkg-buildpackage. OPTIONS
-t, --only-tarball Stop after creating the tar.gz archive. -s, --only-source-dir Stop after preparing the Debian source package directory (do not attempt to build the package). -S, --only-debian-source Only build a Debian source package (do not build binary packages). -p PACKAGE, --package PACKAGE Specify package name (default: ruby-*). Passed to dh-make-ruby. See dh-make-ruby(1). --ruby-versions VERSIONS Ruby versions to build the package for (default: all). Passed to dh-make-ruby. See dh-make-ruby(1). -h, --help Displays gem2deb usage information. -v, --version Displays gem2deb version information. HOW THE .GEM ->; .TGZ CONVERSION WORKS A gem named mygem-0.1.0.gem is converted in a tarball with (approximately) the following steps: mkdir mygem-0.1.0 cd mygem-0.1.0 tar xfm /absolute/path/to/mygem-0.1.0.gem tar xzfm data.tar.gz zcat metadata.gz > metadata.yml rm -f data.tar.gz metadata.gz cd .. tar czf mygem-0.1.0.tar.gz mygem-0.1.0 rm -rf mygem-0.1.0 The generated tarball has the following properties: Files It contains all the files the gem contains. Metadata It contains the gem metadata ends up in a file named ``metadata.yml`` inside the mygem-0.1.0 directory. SEE ALSO
