I haven't used ferret in a about a year but before that I had successfully used acts_as_ferret and it worked well. But I am failing to get newer versions of the plugin to work. I installed the latest ferret gem then the acts_as_ferret gem (this bit was new since I last used it) then I added require 'acts_as_ferret' to enviroment.rb then I coped aaf_install into my project and ran it Installing: ferret_server /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutils.rb:1182:in `stat': No such file or directory - ./../script/ferret_server (Errno::ENOENT) from /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutils.rb:1182:in `lstat' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutils.rb:1160:in `stat' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutils.rb:1242:in `copy_file' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutils.rb:459:in `copy_file' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutils.rb:383:in `cp' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutils.rb:1377:in `fu_each_src_dest' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutils.rb:1393:in `fu_each_src_dest0' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutils.rb:1375:in `fu_each_src_dest' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutils.rb:382:in `cp' from aaf_install:13:in `install' from aaf_install:19 and when I try to run the normal rails server I get : ~/web_sites/new_early$ruby script/server => Booting lighttpd (use 'script/server webrick' to force WEBrick) => Rails 2.2.2 application starting on http://0.0.0.0:3000 => Call with -d to detach => Ctrl-C to shutdown server (see config/lighttpd.conf for options) /Users/itchy/web_sites/new_early/public/../config/environment.rb:2:in `require': no such file to load -- acts_as_ferret (LoadError) from /Users/itchy/web_sites/new_early/public/../config/environment.rb:2 from /Users/itchy/web_sites/new_early/public/dispatch.fcgi:21 2009-03-20 23:34:58: (mod_fastcgi.c.1048) the fastcgi-backend /Users/itchy/web_sites/new_early/public/dispatch.fcgi failed to start: 2009-03-20 23:34:58: (mod_fastcgi.c.1052) child exited with status 1 /Users/itchy/web_sites/new_early/public/dispatch.fcgi 2009-03-20 23:34:58: (mod_fastcgi.c.1055) if you try do run PHP as FastCGI backend make sure you use the FastCGI enabled version. You can find out if it is the right one by executing 'php -v' and it should display '(cgi-fcgi)' in the output, NOT (cgi) NOR (cli) For more information check http://www.lighttpd.net/documentation/fastcgi.html... 2009-03-20 23:34:58: (mod_fastcgi.c.1060) If this is PHP on Gentoo add fastcgi to the USE flags 2009-03-20 23:34:58: (mod_fastcgi.c.1356) [ERROR]: spawning fcgi failed. 2009-03-20 23:34:58: (server.c.834) Configuration of plugins failed. Going down. Exiting any ideas?
