Problem with installing acts_as_ferret plugin


#1

Hi all,

when I type this:

ruby script/plugin install
svn://projects.jkraemer.net/acts_as_ferret/tags/stable/acts_as_ferret

from my rails project the plugin is not getting installed, its simply
going back to my rails application.

I don’t find the plugin in the vendor/plugin directory

I am using Instant Rails for your information. Could anyone please let
me know whats going wrong…

Cheers

Cass

Do yo have subversion installed? What happens if you do
svn ls
svn://projects.jkraemer.net/acts_as_ferret/tags/stable/acts_as_ferret
on the command line?

Hi Jens,

I presume I have subversion installed as I didn’t get any problems while
installing has_many_friends plugin.

When I type this at the command line:

svn://projects.jkraemer.net/acts_as_ferret/tags/stable/acts_as_ferret

it says: svn is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operational
program or batch file

but if I type the full command:

ruby script/plugin install
svn://projects.jkraemer.net/acts_as_ferret/tags/stable/acts_as_ferret

it simply returns the command prompt.

I am totally new to ruby and to programming itself so its quite
confusing…

wonder if i need to install subversion as you asked?

Please help

Cass

I’m not sure about the way these things work under windows, maybe
script/plugin install can work even without having an svn executable
anywhere.

Sometimes the svn:// protocol makes problems with restrictive firewalls
blocking outgoing connections. There’s an export of the current stable
version (0.4.1) attached to the wiki start page:
http://projects.jkraemer.net/acts_as_ferret/

Hi Jens

Thanks for the reply, I downloaded the export from the wiki and copied
the acts_as_ferret plugin into my vendor/plugin directory, but now I
have a new problem, my webrick server for the project aint starting, it
syas something about ruby_gems/custom_require.rb:32:in
‘gem_original_require’,

If I remove the plugin from the vendor directory the server is starting
normally.

What could I have missed?

Cheers

Cass
