RoR BSD setup, file_column / Rmagick "invalid image"


So ive recently finished up my first RoR application and made sure it
all worked right on the windows machine i developed it on. then deployed
it on which runs Open/Free BSD. I had to jump through a few
little hoops to get it working and set the permissions for file_column
to create directories, but it still doesnt work right. When i go to add
a new item to the database and try adding a picture with the entry, even
if the picture is valid (all lowercase, no special chars in the name),
and i can verify it, the rmagick check for a valid image returns it
invalid when i try to add it.

1 error prohibited this equipment from being saved

There were problems with the following fields:
Image invalid

I traced that part back to this code from within file column.

from “/file-column/lib/magick_file_column”

class BaseUploadedFile # :nodoc:
def transform_with_magick
if needs_resize?
img = ::Magick::Image::read(absolute_path).first
rescue ::Magick::ImageMagickError
@magick_errors ||= []
@magick_errors << “invalid”

now im wondering what do i need to do or change to get this working
right? it really bugs me becuase it works fine on my box, and the error
it gives doesnt tell me much about what is happening, the logs dont seem
to show anything helpful either.
