I picked up a post on the RoR list and decided to see if it fixed my stack level problem. It did so Iâ??m x-posting. Here is the original post, in case anyone else is having this problem: For clarification, the problem only occurs in an environment where Gem Rails is present. The current code handles this improperly. So, we have a stop-gap fix and it appears the real fix is due RSN. >> #load this before doing ANYTHING freaky with the reloading. >> begin >> require 'rails_version' # Rails 1.0, 1.1.0 >> rescue LoadError, Gem::Exception >> require 'rails/version' # renamed as of Rails 1.1.1 >> end >> >> As I am running Rails 1.1.2, in order to get the correct rails version >> file being loaded I need the first "require" above to fail, so that the >> rescue kicks in and the second "require" loads the "rails/version.rb" >> from vendor/rails/.... >> >> Unfortunately, in my case (on Dreamhost) the first require does not fail >> as the Rails 1.0 gem is available. >> >> If I change the above code to simply say: >> >> require 'rails/version' >> >> then my app works just fine.
