Error running generate scaffold - doesn't see table which is


#1

Hi

I’m trying to get some basic stuff working from the “Agile Web Dev with
ROR”
book - chapter 6 “Create the Maintenance App”. (On linux, mysql 4.1,
ruby
1.8.4)

I have the depot_development db created, and teh “products” table
definitely
exists.

The user name and pw are correct in database.yml

But I get this:

daniel@roomatthetop:~/work/demo$ ruby script/generate scaffold Product
Admin
exists app/controllers/
exists app/helpers/
exists app/views/admin
exists test/functional/
dependency model
exists app/models/
exists test/unit/
exists test/fixtures/
identical app/models/product.rb
identical test/unit/product_test.rb
identical test/fixtures/products.yml
error Before updating scaffolding from new DB schema, try
creating a
table for your model (Product)

Has to be something simple (I’ve already made this work on win box
previously, only did it on my linux because I got an identical error
when
trying to throw ror at a more complex schema I want to play with).

I didn’t see any clues in the errata for the book. Any ideas on what
could
be the problem, or how to debug?

cheers

Daniel
