Hello there good rails people!

Just did a fresh install of rails on my new (old) Ubuntu machine. I am
running ruby 1.8.2 and have installed about five extra packages that do
not come with Ubuntu. I managed to install ruby-gems and used gems to
successfully install rails but I am getting an error message when I run
rails, it seems to be choking on a Tkl paren. Google has not turned up
much documentation so I am turning to the mailing list.

Here is the error message:

Same error when the above command is run as root.

Any help much appreciated.

Best regards,
Jeremiah

Try to install soap4r package. Or better compile ruby yourself. For some
reasons, debian guys decided to split the ruby package into many many
small
pieces.
