I'm trying to get a Ruby on Rails application to work under Apache.  It
works fine when run under WEBrick (via "ruby script/server").  I copied
the "public" directory (as well as "lib", "app", and "config") to my
preferred Apache directory (see below for details).  As told in
instructions on a web page, I tried executing "dispatch.fcgi".  It gets
a "Internal Server Error".  Far below is  the output of "ruby --debug

I'm running

ruby 1.8.4-1.fc3
rails 1.0.0
httpd 2.0.53
mod_fastcgi 2.4.2
actionmailer 1.1.5
actionpack 1.11.2
actionwebservice 1.0.0
activerecord 1.13.2
activesupport 1.2.5
mysql 2.7
rake 0.7.0
sources 0.0.1
