FreeRIDE problem ("Failing to load")


#1

Hello,

I had to reinstall ruby recently, along with everything else, due to a
HD
formatting. Now freeride used to work pretty well before, and I don’t
recall
seeing this problem first time around - I suspect I might be missing
some
gem, possibly some form of ‘tools’.

In any case, using either the stand-alone or the windows installer, I
get
back a long list of files it can’t load and/or start - like the last two
lines:

Failing to load: rubyide_tools_source_parser
Failing to start: rubyide_tools_source_parser

I’m using the latest stable versions of everthing, on a xp machine.

If it isn’t already painfully clear to you, I’m not very well-versed in
ruby, so please keep it as simple as possible.

Thank you
Tobias

Oh, almost forgot.
In my search for something along the line of ‘tools’, I tried to use
rubygems to look it up, but something is amiss here too.
Typing ‘gem search tools --remote’ returns:

*** REMOTE GEMS ***
Updating Gem source index for: http://gems.rubyforge.org
ERROR: While executing gem … (ArgumentError)
invalid date

It returns the same thing when I try to use ‘query’.
Why would it care about a friggin’ date?!

Thanks again!

Try deleting the freeride configuration directory (it will be
automatically recreated). Its the “freeride” subdirectory of your home
directory (on windows this would be %USERPROFILE%\freeride). This can
sometimes help.

Thanks Curt, but I actually found this advise already, and it doesn’t
help.

I’ve gotten used to freeride and would prefer to stick with it, but
perhaps
there are other ruby IDEs around if I can’t?

Have you tried the latest version of the one-click installer (184-16
preview 3)? It comes with the new version of FreeRIDE, and that copy
of FreeRIDE is working for me (just make sure you do not install on
top of a previous version of the one-click installer).
