I couldn’t reproduce it on OSX 10.4.9 + Ruby 1.8.6 + FastRI 0.3.0 (that
theoretically the very same setup).
However, I noticed that the stdlib rdoc documentation wasn’t being
on ‘make install’, so I had to ‘make install-doc’ manually after
1.8.6. If you’re getting
$ fastri-server -b
‘make install-doc’ should help.
You can try qri (identical to fri but using the local index, thus
needing the DRb service, and a bit slower) to discard network/DRb
that doesn’t seem to be the culprit.
I have it installed on OS X, with ruby 1.8.5, and it seems to work
for some things and not for others.
It seems as if my rdoc database has not been consistently generated.
Is that true for you as well?
