Hi All,

I am trying to use the auth_generator package and am having problems
with
 the GD requirements. So, while I realize this is tangental to rails, I
am
hoping someone may have some insight for me.

I get the following error when trying to update my account info:

MissingSourceFile in Account#info

no such file to load -- GD
RAILS_ROOT: script/../config/..

Application Trace | Framework Trace | Full Trace
/usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:21:in `require__'

./script/../config/../app/controllers/application.rb:12:in `process'
./script/../config/../app/controllers/application.rb:11:in `process'
This error occured while loading the following files:
   GD

I am running Mac OS 10.4.3 and have insalled gd and gd2 using fink
and installed rb-gd using ports.

Any ideas?

Scott

I've been having similar issues.  I tried installing gd and GD 2 from
darwinports and from source on OS X 10.4.6.

Just checking to see if there were any updates or if you found a
solution?  Or perhaps there is a much easier way of getting Ruby GD up
and running smoothly that I'm missing?  If anyone knows let me know,
thanks.

Hey Jay,

I still haven't gotten it to work, atleast not on my OS X dev machine.
Might be easier when moving to production.

Only solutions I think is now in the 2.0 version you can just use
gravatar.com for icons throughout the entire site.  Though I'd
personally like to have the image upload functionality for my users.

I just wish they had used something like super image or
RMagic/ImageMagic from the beginning.
