Newbie-Question

Hi.
I’ve just started using Ruby on Rails.
Now I’ve got my first problem.

I generated a new migration ‘add_price’ and get the message:

                                                                                                                                                                                                                          D:\ruby\work\depot>rake 

db:migrate

Any idea for the reason?

Thanks,

You need ‘edgerails’ if you want to use the decimal column. Check the
AWDWR errata as it should mention something about it. Rails allows
you to have multiple versions of itself. You’d need to update to
edgerails for the Depot application only.

You’d need to update to
edgerails for the Depot application only.

Can you tell me how to do this?

I chose the “easy way”. Just make sure you are in the depot directory
when you run the command.

Stuart

you’ll have to install subversion (svn). its a version control system.

If you have subversion /svn/ then make sure it’s in the environmental
path, otherwise, yes you’d need to install it.
