Installed ruby ver 1.9 but not working with rails 2.3.2


#1

Hello,

I’m using OS X leopard and Rails 2.3.2

I’ve installed ruby by downloading the source and compiling it.

Now, I have

ruby -v
1.8.6
ruby19 -v
1.9

How can I get ruby19 to replace ruby ?

Also, when I do ruby19 script/server, I get the following error :
Missing the Rails 2.3.2 gem.

Any Ideas ?

Thank you.
-VS.

1.9 is several months old. You almost certainly want 1.9.1

You can create a link from the ruby19 to the current ruby.

which ruby will tell you the path to the current ruby. I’ll pretend
it said “/usr/bin/ruby”.

Move the current ruby someplace else.

mv /usr/bin/ruby /some/place/else

which ruby19 will tell you the path to the ruby19.

Add a link:

ln -s /path/to/ruby19 /usr/bin/ruby

Thanks Greg.

Now when I do ruby -v, I get
ruby 1.9.1p0 (2009-01-30 revision 21907) [i386-darwin9.6.0]

But when I run script/server in my rails directory, I get :
Missing the Rails 2.3.2 gem.

Any ideas ?

Thanks so much,
-VS

Hi, you’ll need to execute
gem install rails

Good luck,

What’s your script/server look like?

Can you run script/console without issue?

Yes, I get the same error on script/console. Here’s my script/server
#!/usr/bin/env ruby
require File.dirname(FILE) + ‘/…/config/boot’
require ‘commands/server’

Thank you.
-VS


#8

Thanks Conrad. I’ve already done that…

When I do ‘gem install rails’, I get :
Successfully installed rails-2.3.2
1 gem installed

Now, when I go to the rails project directory and do ‘script/server’,
I still get :
Missing the Rails 2.3.2 gem.

It’s really frustrating… Any Ideas ??

Thank you.

Looks normal to me.

What RAILS_GEM_VERSION is in your config/environment.rb ?

#10

This might mean something… When I run ‘gem install rails’ as the
local user( in the previous attempt I ran this as root), I get
WARNING: Installing to ~/.gem since /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8 and
/usr/bin aren’t both writable.
WARNING: You don’t have /Users/vs/.gem/ruby/1.8/bin in your PATH,
gem executables will not run.

Any ideas ?

Thank you.

#11

Thanks Greg. Here’s the line from config/environment.rb
RAILS_GEM_VERSION = ‘2.3.2’ unless defined? RAILS_GEM_VERSION

Any ideas ? this is driving me crazy… Everything was working under
ruby 1.8.6

Thanks,
-VS


#12

update: if I do “sudo gem install rails”, I get :
Successfully installed rails-2.3.2
1 gem installed

But if I do script/server: I still get:
Missing the Rails 2.3.2 gem

What am I missing ?

Thanks,

#13

This is definetely working with ruby 1.8.6. Here’s the output using
the old version of ruby :
oldruby script/server
=> Booting Mongrel
=> Rails 2.3.2 application starting on http://0.0.0.0:3000
=> Call with -d to detach
=> Ctrl-C to shutdown server

But when I try :
ruby script/server,
Missing the Rails 2.3.2 gem

Error has to do with ruby 1.9.1p0

Thanks,

When you built ruby 1.9.1 from source, did you go all the way to make
install? If so, what was the root (config --prefix=/???) that you
gave prior to the initial make?

I’ve found that just linking in the executable with major releases of
anything is often the shortest path to disfunction.

Here’s a sequence you could use to build a parallel RoR suite.

  1. Identify a new root for your RoR install suite like: /opt/RoR.
    Create that directory and make yourself be owner (so you won’t need to
    sudo all the time).

  2. In your Ruby source directory type:
    2a) ./configure --prefix=/opt/RoR
    2b) make
    2c) make install
    You’ll now have /opt/RoR/bin, /opt/RoR/lib, … with your new ruby in
    place.

  3. In a term window type:
    3a) PATH=/opt/RoR/bin:$PATH
    3b) ruby --version You should see something like:
    ruby 1.9.1p0 (2009-01-30 revision 21907) [powerpc-darwin9.6.0]
    3c) gem install rake rack
    3d) gem install rails

Now you’ve got a new RoR suite that’s available if your path is
modified as in step 3a, else you’ve got your original RoR setup
(assuming you haven’t already blown it away).

Hi, is Rails being installed in the correct place? Also, you’ll need
to install thin if you’re working with Rails 2.3.x and Ruby 1.9.1.
Thus, you should be able to install it by doing the following:

gem install thin

Good luck,

OK, here’s a chart that you should following:

                ( mongrel compatible )    ( thin compatible )   (

wberick compatible ) ( passenger compatible )

ruby 1.8.6 Y Y
Y Y

ruby 1.9.1 N Y
N Y

Good luck,

I bet that the gem executable is still the ruby 1.8 version (ie that
installs gems for ruby 1.8). The one that installs for ruby 1.9 is
probably called gem19 or something like that.

#18

When you followed gregs advice you ended up sort of “fooling” the ruby
command. now you have two of everything (2 rails gems, one under 1.8
and one under 1.9).

make sure you are calling the correct gem from the correct place. If i
were you, i would uninstall one of your ruby instalations (at this
point 1.8)


#19

sudo gem19 install rails?


#20

Thanks for the lesson greg.

Maybe i wasnt using the correct terminlogy, that having been done by
years of explaining such concepts to people that dont know what
binaries are and english not being my first language.

Nevertheless, VS is using one version of ruby with one set of gems and
running the other version which doesnt happen to have those set of
gems, and this happened by following your advice. That is what i was
trying to say.

so, here are my 2 cents. use defaults for starters, dont go for the
installing in som/weird/place/, have one version of ruby and one set
of gems, like this you are less likely to run into these problems.
