[Re-post from Ruby list, where this didn't belong. Sorry for the noise.] Hi all! Following the guide at http://manuals.rubyonrails.com/read/chapter/105, I'm trying to i18n a Rails application. However, when executing 'rake updatepo', I get the following error message: "numeric literal without digits" Searching Google and the mailing list archives yields only two hints. (1) install ruby 1.8.4 and (2) make sure there's an empty line at the end of each file. Although I can't seem to find the sense in the second one, I've made sure my environment complies with both. The error message still doesn't go away... I'd be darn grateful for any pointers that you might have :-) Best regards from Germany, Raphael

> [...] > "numeric literal without digits" > [...] Okay, the problem solved itself. Apparently using the Dapper Drake .debs in Ubuntu Breezy Badger in order to get ruby 1.8.4 running isn't the best idea (it's suggested when you search Google). I've now compiled Ruby 1.8.4 by hand and it rgettext works. Although now it says no such file to load -- gettext/utils coming from the line "require 'gettext/utils'" in the Rakefile. You guys wouldn't know how to solve that one, would you? :-) Bests, Raphael
