I’m working with the agile rails book (latest rev), and have encountered
show stoppers than I woud have expected. The lastest one is rather
Page 57 is somewhat notorious for breaking. There are all sorts of blogs
about breakage and fixes since roughly Nov 05.
Rails 0.14.1 and the Broken Depot
Steel rails through my skull
Even back then, the breakage was known and supposed to have been fixed
later versions of rails. But here I am in Feb 06, cracking up on the
issue. I updated via gems before building this depot app (gem install
–include-dependencies) so I’m puzzled that the issue persists. I’ve not
tried the manual fixes, I’m sure that they work.
But I don’t understand a couple of aspects of this. If this issue was
supposed to have been fixed months ago, then why do I still see it? And,
does this particular error seem to strike at the book’s sample app in
particular? I’m hoping that generating a scaffold does not normally bust
things up like this. If it did, most of the posts wouldn’t be around the
book sample code.
Possibly related is that while I’ve run gem install rails
–include-dependencies I still have ruby 1.8.2 (why?). rails is 1.0.0.
That’s not the most recent ruby but this would seem to be a rails issue
a ruby one?
