How to avoid pre-compile on deployment

I commented the following code in my deploy.rb , to avoid pre-
compiling upon deployment …

namespace :assets do

desc “Compile assets”

task :precompile, :roles => :app do

run "cd #{release_path} && rake RAILS_ENV=#{rails_env}




but it seems to have no effect … cap deploy log show precompiling

triggering after callbacks for `deploy:update_code’

  • executing `deploy:assets:precompile’
  • executing “cd /var/www/vhosts/
    releases/20120103234418 && bundle exec rake RAILS_ENV=production
    RAILS_GROUPS=assets assets:precompile”

I have an issue with the .swf file being pre-compiled and I don’t
want that …
so I run a local pre-compile before deployment …
rake assets:precompile --trace with config.assets.digest = false in
and that was fine … I got the files player.swf and ova-jw.swf
in public/assets/jwplayer folder

then I put back config.assets.digest = true in production.rb and did
my cap deploy
but on the remote production server , in public/assets I have
player.swf and ova-jw.swf BUT also
ova-jw-cd5839fa631138fe59903b79af552531 and
seems not to be an issue for the player.swf , but it’s definitely an
issue for the ova-jw.swf which is a plugin and need dynamic
settings …

feedback will appreciated on how to solve this issue ( the ova-jw.swf
plug is running fine in local development mode, but
cannot be set up in production …
