Rails Project only with root rights


#1

I try to create a rails project as usual user. It does not work.

If I do that as root it works fine.
Also commands rails -v and gem -v does work only with root rights.

On the command:

developer@linux:~/data> rails test

I get following output:

/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activesupport-1.3.1/lib/active_support/dependencies.rb:95:in

Almost the exact thing happened to me.

I can’t really give any useful advice other than saying that I got it to
work again by re-installing rails. Only thing is that now, lighttpd and
the ruby console don’t work for me anymore.

In hindsight, I think my installation was all fine until I tried to use
Locomotive to run apps, so I’m going to blame that for my broken
install.

Sorry Im not much help, I just thought i’d share my experience,
