Blank page output

Hello, I’m new to Ruby and RubyOnRails. I’m running Fedora 4 which comes
with Ruby 1.84-1. I installed rubyonrails, and I’m doing the a sample
program found on
http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/onlamp/2005/01/20/rails.html?page=2
I ran ruby script/generate controller MyTest. I edited the file
my_test_controller.rb. Here’s the code I entered

class MyTestController < ApplicationController
def index
render_text “Hello World, my first line of Ruby”
end
end

I save the file. I then ran the browser with the following url

http://127.0.0.1:3000/My_Test/

I get a blank page, no output.

if I do

http://127.0.0.1:3000/garbage/

I still get a blank page instead of a NOT FOUND message.

I know I’m doing something wrong, but I can’t figure out what.

If anyone out there has an idea what, Thanks :slight_smile:

try lower case…

http://127.0.0.1:3000/my_test
or (I find this easier)
http://localhost:3000/my_test
or (I find this even easier)
localhost/my_test

Windows seems to ignore case sensitivities…

Windows sees “My_Test” and “my_test” as the same name, UNIX/Linux does
not.

I’m running this on my Fedora 4. I’ve tried lowercase, but same result

Figured it out. Fedora 4 installs only ruby by default. I searched
Google fedora 4 and ruby. I found out that you don’t only need ruby, but
the following file

ruby-devel
ruby-libs
irb
rdoc

I installed them (and everything else related Ruby that I could find in
Fedora) and now it works.

Thanks for your patience people
Take Care
