I am a total beginner when it comes to rails and would like to know are
there any issues with porting rails from freebsd to windows?
This is the error that I have

Bad file descriptor - /tmp/mysql.sock

I am not sure if this would help or not but I am currently on a cygwin

thanks if anyone can help

I'm not sure if socket-based MySQL runs on Windows...  have you tried
changing your database.yml file to point to localhost at port 3600
Comment out the socket part of the config.
