I am new to Ruby so I thought the best way to get into it would be to follow the ONLamp "Rolling with Ruby on Rails" intro. I followed the instructions to the letter and everything work just great, very impressive:-). A couple of days later when I went back to it I got the following message when trying to start the WEBrick server. U:\RoRProjects\cookbook>ruby script\server => Booting WEBrick... => Rails application started on http://0.0.0.0:3000 => Ctrl-C to shutdown server; call with --help for options [2006-05-03 08:52:40] INFO WEBrick 1.3.1 [2006-05-03 08:52:40] INFO ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [i386-mswin32] [2006-05-03 08:52:40] WARN TCPServer Error: Bad file descriptor - bind(2) u:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/webrick/utils.rb:73:in `initialize': Bad file descriptor - bind(2) (Errno::EBADF) from u:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/webrick/utils.rb:73:in `create_listeners' I have tried totally uninstalling (ruby, rails, MySQL) and then reinstalling but with no success. Obviously something has changed in the environment that it is running in but I cannot recall anything that has been done that would be of significance. I submitted this to the Ruby mailing list and Eric H. suggest I try the following: U:\ruby>ruby -rsocket -e "TCPServer.new 'localhost', 3000" which proved there's nothing already running on port 3000. Any suggestions would be gratfuly received.
