Maybe there is no RPM package for Rails. Or you don't have the repository that provides the rpm installed. I tried to search for a rails package in google, but I cannot find something useful, hence I guess you have to install it from source.

<edit> Correction: there are some packages (old versions anyway) out there, specifically for mandriva, opensuse and ubuntu. Found them at www.rpmseek.com </edit>

Confused! Via yum I had installed ruby & irb 1.8.5. So I am looking at installing the appropriate version of ruby on rails which supports this version of ruby. How do u find repositories which have ruby or rails or anything and then add it to your repo list?

# yum search rails
# yum install rubygem-rails mysql-devel ruby-devel

... rubygem-rails is in the 'epel.repo'.

# gem install rails
... and wait 5 minutes for it to complete the install.

Next
Code:
# gem install mysql -- --with-mysql-include=/usr/include/mysql --with-mysql-lib=/usr/lib/mysql --with-mysql-config
Ref.
http://involution.com/railsonrhel/
which is the first hit, by Googling .. dag rpm rails ..
( The page was issued 2005, at that time there was no
rpm package(s) rubygem-* available.)
.....

Please also do # yum search ruby
to see some other 'rubygem-xxxx' packages.
.....

Good luck !

# yum -y install epel-release


epel means "extra packages el"

Take a look at http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories and search for Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL). Follow instructions and the trick is done.

Sorry , I wasn't that alert.

It is a 'vicious circle'.

The package 'epel-release' is in ...... the epel.repo.
