is it possible to install redmine without root privilege ?
I have access to a linux cluster, with apache, ruby1.8.5, and tons of other software.
Is it possible to install redmine in user space, or do I need help from our sysadmin ?

You need your sysadmin to get a database and proxy from your apache, nginx or any other webserver to redmine's mongels which can run on a higher port that doesn't need admin rights.
For installing missing gems you will need sudo rights.

You can install gems in your home directory if you set GEM_PATH.
As long as you listen at a port above 1024, you wouldn't, strictly speaking, need a sysadmin at all. But to integrate it with the system's regular webserver, which is desirable, you would.
