Problem with acts_as_ferret and REE-20090421

Hi

Apparently script/ferret_server (with ruby enterprise edition) silently
crashes upon the first attempt to connect to it. Nothing is written to
the log files, no messages, nothing. Must be something with DRb. I wish
there was a way to prevent its daemonization in debug mode.

Found a workaround by running script/ferret_server with standard ruby
1.8.6 (2007-09-24 patchlevel 111) [i686-linux], while the web
application remains on ruby 1.8.6 (2008-08-11 patchlevel 287)
[i686-linux] Ruby Enterprise Edition 20090421.

I am using acts_as_ferret (0.4.3) and ferret (0.11.6). Rails 2.3.2.
CentOS 5.3 32bit.
Will post a ticket to acts_as_ferret tracker when my account is approved
there by the moderator.

Regards

Yar

That’s strange. We’re not experiencing that issue with:

  • acts_as_ferret 0.4.3
  • Ferret 0.11.6
  • Rails 2.0.5 / 2.1.2
  • CentOS 5.2 x86_64

Notice the tiny differences in Rails and CentOS makes.
Have you tried recompiling the Ferret gem?

Unfortunately I cannot check a 64 bit library on a 32 bit OS. Sure, I
recompiled both gems several times. However, it is probably not ferret
itself, but DRb inside acts_as_ferret, because it works well in
development mode without standalone search server.
