Upgraded to rails 3 and now I can't install plugins

Hello,
I just upgraded to rails 3 and whenever I try to install a plugin, it
acts like it’s installing and then when I try to confirm
that it was installed by going to the vendor/plugins directory, there’s
never anything there.

Here’s and example of my install code:

rails plugin install

Thanks for any help!

This is not related to your question… but I don’t believe
restful-authentication will work with Rails 3. You could always patch
it,
but you might be better off choosing a different auth gem.

Why the plugin isn’t installing, I’m not certain.

At this point, I am only concerned about getting ANY plugin to work and
I just don’t understand what the problem could be because I’m not
getting any type of errors or strange behavior.

Another piece of information: I’m running all this on a mac-book pro
w/ 10.5.8 Leopard.

Thanks for your time!

For what it’s worth, I rolled up a brand new rails 3 app and tried to
install the same plugin; the install worked, it was sitting in
vendor/plugins/restful-authentication. So I’m not sure why it wouldn’t
be
working for you. I’m on OS 10.6.6, but I really don’t think that’s the
issue.

Which version of ruby/rails? I know rails 3, but is it 3.0.4? Earlier?

Have you tried other plugins, just to be sure? Also; is everything
else
working? It seems odd that just this one thing would go wrong.

That version of ruby is probably fine. You could try to upgrade, but I
have
a hard time thinking that this is the problem.

Out of curiosity: if you create a brand new rails app, just to test, and
go
there and try to install a plugin, does it work?

One other point to consider: do you even need to worry about this? I
don’t
think very many plugins are maintained any more; most authors seem to be
writing gems instead.

A bit more info that might help:

I’m running this:

rails -v
Rails 3.0.4

ruby -v
ruby 1.8.7 (2008-08-11 patchlevel 72) [i686-darwin9.8.0]

That ruby version looks pretty cracked out to me - could this be the
issue?

I can create a new rails app w/ no problem and the app works. I
can try to install any plugin in that newly created project but they
never exist in vendor/plugins. I also notice there are some other
things wrong and I’m worried that something bigger is going on. For
instance, when I try to install rvm this way:

bash < <( curl http://rvm.beginrescueend.com/releases/rvm-install-head )

I get this:

bash: line 31: git: command not found

ERROR: Cloning from git://github.com/wayneeseguin/rvm.git failed, trying
via https now (https://github.com/wayneeseguin/rvm.git).
bash: line 35: git: command not found

ERROR: Cloning from https://github.com/wayneeseguin/rvm.git failed,
perhaps your git version does not support the https protocol? out of
ideas… halting.

Finally, I still think it’s important to install plugins.

Sounds like you don’t have git installed (or at least not in your
$PATH), which you’re going to need for installing plugins from a git
repository

Fred

Yup - problem solved!! Now I’m feeling pretty stupid.

Thanks for your help.
