I have noticed a couple of weird things going on with our code and it running completely different (causing errors where they weren't before) between our dev environment and a new staging environment that we are setting up. My dev environment is a PowerBook running everything current except for edge rails. Our staging envronment is Fedora Core 4 Ruby 1.8.4 installed via yum ruby-devel Ruby Gems Rails 1.0 MySQL 5 ruby-fcgi/mysql RMagick (and all that it requires) Apache 2.0.54 acting as a proxy pass Lighttpd as app server FastCGI I have noticed two things so far that are acting odd, first is that acts_as_tree does nothing of the sort. I had a call to object.parent.name and it croaked saying that parent was not a valid method for class object. The second wierd thing is mentioned in a previous email tonight. That having a dynamic_dir set up for file_column complains: ArgumentError (dynamic_dir' is not an instance method of class File): Is there something wierd going on with Fedora? or is it just some weird gremlin in the system that is causing errors to appear when they never existed before? Any thoughts? Thanks Andrew

There are some known problems with fedora core 4. You can google it and find the details. I use core 4 and I had a bear of a time getting rails to work properly with legacy databases. My problem had it's root with the database bindings (primarily the c bindings). I know this doesn't help at all, but atleast you know you're not the only one with problems.
