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.
