Undefined method `^' for "e":String

I’m attempting to learn Ruby on Rails, but these errors aren’t helping.
I’m currently trying to follow the lessons available on
www.learningrails.com. I received this error after trying to visit a
page generated by using the scaffold command. Actually, this is all I
did up until the error:

rails sample2 -d mysql
mysqladmin -u root -p create sample2_development
ruby script/generate controller pages home resources about contact
ruby script/generate scaffold page name:string title:string body:text
rake db:migrate

Then after visiting localhost:3000/pages/new, this error occurred…

Showing app/views/pages/new.html.erb where line #3 raised:
undefined method `^’ for “e”:String

Extracted source (around line #3):
1:

New page


2:
3: <% form_for(@page) do |f| %>
4: <%= f.error_messages %>
5:
6:

I read another post on here that reported an error similar to this and
it lead to this patch:
https://rails.lighthouseapp.com/projects/8994/tickets/3144/

However, this patch is apparently specifying message_verifier.rb, which
I do not see in my error, and I do not know how to apply patches to
Rails.

If anyone could be of assistance I would greatly appreciate it.

I’m using:
Ruby 1.9.1p243 (2009-07-16 revision 24175)
Rails 2.3.4
RubyGems 1.3.5
MySQLAdmin Ver 8.42 Distrib 5.1.40

Also, this was what popped out of the terminal:

ActionView::TemplateError (undefined method `^’ for “e”:String) on line
#3 of app/views/pages/new.html.erb:
1:

2:

Hi Joe dude

Firstly advise you to use any name other than page for the resource

ruby script/generate controller pages home resources about contact
ruby script/generate scaffold page name:string title:string body:text
rake db:migrate

Instead of these do like

ruby script/generate scaffold Page name:string title:string body:text
rake db:migrate
Now check

 And add the additional routes as you go through

There is a bug in rails 2.3.4 … that throws the same errors you are
mentioning.

Well I figured out how to apply this patch by visiting this site –
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/930126/how-do-you-apply-a-patch-to-ruby-on-rails

I’ll try creating a new Rails app and see what happens.

It really doesn’t matter since I literally just began toying around with
RoR. I already deleted the 2 sample apps I generated last night; they
were hardly touched anyway. No big deal :stuck_out_tongue:

You don’t need to create a new app.
