Usually I use RVM + Passenger for my rails applications. Recently, however, I needed to use Passenger without RVM. And I'm confused about gem location.

What's the location of gems that Passenger without RVM uses? The system gems or what?

If I do 'bundle install', gems are installed for the user, right? Then, the gems are not used by Passenger.

Can you help me with this confusion?
