Need help installing Puppet and Ruby..


I am working on RHEL 5.6 server, this is in private DMZ. No access to internet. I have downloaded the files I need to install the Puppet & Ruby. My goal is to install Puppet. I have downloaded....

mcollective-2.2.3-1.el5.noarch- SERVER.rpm        

when I start the install. I get this error message.
rpm -ivh mcollective-common-2.2.3-1.el5.noarch.rpm

I did install ruby on this server. When I do ruby -v, I get this...

if this is still an issue ...

some packages require or expect pre-requisite packages to be in certain paths or be verifiable thru certain utilities (i.e., pkginfo, yum, etc.). i am thinking your issue is that your ruby package came from a different source as your puppet package so the puppet install could not find it during the pre-install checks. you either need to install a ruby package from the same source as the puppet package or you need to fix the path to ruby so puppet finds it. symlinks may help if you go through with the path fix.
