Hello list,

I'm new to rails (and first time poster here).
I'm trying to get rails installed on my shell,, and I'm having
some issues.

First, some background:
- I have installed ruby to ~/local/bin/ruby
- I have installed rubygems to ~/local/bin/gem with all gem installs
into ~/.gems
- I have also installed a bunch of gems, including rails, and they all
up in ~/.gems/gems

When I symlinked my /public directory into my /www ... this was the
in the apache error log:
`require__': no such file to load -- initializer (LoadError)
        from /usr/local/ftpd/websites/
        from /usr/local/ftpd/websites/
[Fri Feb  3 23:57:40 2006] [error] [client] Premature end
of script headers: /usr/local/ftpd/websites/

The question, I suppose, is just "how do i fix it?".  But I've tried
enough things at this point that I might be able to offer a little bit

- Note that this is a fresh 'rails' install, in the sense of 'rails
built this project, and I have changed nothing
- The shebang in dispatch.cgi is #!/home/hax/local/bin/ruby
- config/environment.rb has not been changed at all (maybe it needs to
- require 'initializer' from irb works fine ... require 'rails' does not
("no such file to load") ... require_gem 'rails' loads true
- intializer.rb is in

If anyone has *any* ideas on how to get this fixed, please reply.
I'll paste the output of anything you might want.
This was all the data I could come up with that seemed useful to offer.
Also, if anyone wants to msg me directly, I am always logged into
as 'hax', just leave me a /msg.
