I just installed BackgrounDRb, but now cannot start my server.  I get
this error:

D:\projects\joe>ruby script/server
=> Booting WEBrick...
D:/apps/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/pathname.rb:341:in `lstat': Invalid argument -
/D:/pro
jects/edu/./script/../config (Errno::EINVAL)
        from D:/apps/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/pathname.rb:341:in `realpath'
        from
./script/../config/../vendor/plugins/backgroundrb/lib/middleman_rai
ls_init.rb:2

Anyone know what to do about this?

I used Piston to install BackgrounDRb, in case that makes a difference.

BackgrounDRb 0.2.x doesn't work in Windows.

If you run backgroundrb on a production *nix server but develop on
win32 machines, you can apply a patch to make Rails load without
backgroundrb if it detects it's in a win32 env:

alternatively, use a previous version of backgroundrb - i got hold of it
a
while ago after googling for it for a while.

Okay, thanks guys.  The search begins for BackgrounDRb version 0.1.x

I've been having trouble finding an older version of BackgrounDRb that
works with Windows.  Does anyone know where to find one, or
alternatively, does anyone know if BackgrounDRb 0.3.1 is coming out soon
and will be compatible with Windows?

not sure about future support on Windows, but you can sign up to the
backgroundrb list and get updates about when releases are made:
  http://rubyforge.org/mailman/listinfo/backgroundrb-devel

Here's the Trac site:

You can run the latest backgroundrb (0.2) on windows if you use the
cygwin environment. The drawback is that the ruby provided by cygwin
is a bit slower than the one provided by one-click ruby installer.

See http://www.cygwin.com for more information

Best regards,
Nils

I've installed that older version you attached, and I'm getting the
exact same error when I try to start the server.  I've installed slave
and daemons, too.  Any advice/tips?  Was that really the older version
of backgroundrb?
