Hi!

I'm new in ruby/rails programming and i have a small problem.

I have installed InstantRails 1.0 (for Ruby/Rails/Mysql/Apache envs) and
I'm trying to make a small app working. I'm using auth_generator for
making a login page/users admin pages... and I have a problem when
trying to CHANGE the avatar for the user.

I have the following error:


 MissingSourceFile in Account#info

it is related with GD module (I guess).. so, i've downloaded ruby-gd
from http://raa.ruby-lang.org/cache/ruby-gd/ruby-GD-0.7... and
unzipped it into [instantRails_path]/ruby folder. And I still get that
error.

Do I need to configure/download/install something mode?

TIA

Daniel.

Dan,

Did the last answer to this question on ruby-talk work for you? If so,
then there's no need to anyone to respond here. If not, then hopefully
someone here will have an answer for you.

Hi Curt!

There is something strange in my configuration... I swear that I've
install ruby-gd but i cannot find gd.rb nowhere... any hints?

TIA.

Dan.

I'm afraid not, I haven't used it myself. Perhaps the author of the
package can help,

No problem, Curt! I'll try to fix it myself.. or workaround it :)

Thanks for your support ;)

I've experienced this exact same problem.  Auth_generator was designed
with an earlier version of the GD library--I think it was made for
version 1.8, and version 2.something is the latest.  Unfortunately it's
not a seamless transition.

I'd be curious to find out if you learn the solution to this.

Hi Jeff!

Thanks for your reply.

I have some doubts regarding GD library installation on my machine..
Should I install GD library (1.8 of course) from www.boutell.com or the
ruby-gd wrapper is enough? I believe it is not :)

Anyway, I need a second opinion :P

TIA

Dan.
