Hi,

I’m just trying out RubyStack.

In the install process, when it asks for an app name and app DB password, if I leave the password blank I get the error message and then the installation locks up, and I have to kill the process.

Which, by the by, I’d rather not have to put DB passwords in when I’m working from home on knockaround projects. I’d rather leave them blank.

Also would it be possible to get PhpMyAdmin added to the stack, like in InstantRails, as an install option, maybe? I’ve found it a godsend in development to be able to look at the DB visually to diagnose problems or correct mistakes I’d rather not waste time re-migrating for.

That’s all for now.

Forgot to say – thanks for picking up the IR mantle! I don’t think learning Rails would have been half as easy without it and I’m glad to see someone is continuing with it.

When its finished installing I get:

“There has been an error.
Error running [path]\installrubygems.bat : ruby: no such file to load -- ubygems (LoadError)
ruby: no such file to load -- ubygems (LoadError)
ruby: no such file to load -- ubygems (LoadError)
The application will exit now”

Hi,

Thank you for pointing that bug out, we will look into it. The problem with blank passwords is that we want to provide with as much security as possible, and, well, blank passwords and security, they just don’t get along, really :)

We will discuss adding PhpMyAdmin to the stack. Take into account that doing that would mean increasing significantly the installer size, as we would have to add Apache and PHP as well. One option would be to add it as an upgrade or module. Let us figure out the best way to accomplish it and I’ll get back to you in this same post.

Cheers

I got the same install error.

I have a pc with Vista on it. I opened an elevated command prompt and was able to execute all of the commands in the ‘installrubygems.bat’ file manually. It looks like it completed, but the installer still had to exit. I ran the installation from an elevated command prompt, but it still didn’t have admin rights when it tried to execute the ‘installrubygems.bat’.

Does the installation have far to go from this point? Any ideas how to get the installer to run to completion?

-thx

I just want to report the same install error. Thanks so much for continuing the work of IR.

The RubyStack 1.0-beta1 contains an error: it fails while installing RubyGems on a clean Windows machine without Ruby installed. It doesn’t find the RubyGems components (probably, PATH for the installer isn’t correct) and zlib1.dll. I managed to install the RubyStack by copying the needed files into the appropriate folders during the installation… Looking forward for your fixing ths bug!

Thanks for posting the bug. It will be solved in the next release.

We are trying to replicate the bug, but we were not able to do it. Could you please provide more information about your system?
Useful information could be:
  • The installer log: On Windows XP it is located at “C:\Documents and Settings\bitrock\Local Settings\Temp\bitrock_installer_*.log”
  • Which operating system are you running (service packs included).
  • Other Ruby on Rails Installers already installed on your system.

Can you please provide detailed information about what were you trying to run and what error message was shown. Zlib libraries are provided as zlib.dll instead of zlib1.dll.

Thank you very much guys!!!

Hello again, I’m writing to tell you that we found the origin of the problem. It seems that existent installations of One Click Ruby Installer affects the installer causing the error. We will release a solution soon.

We’ve just released a new version (1.0-beta-2) that solves the installation problem and the empty password crash. Thank you very much for your feedback!

Thanks Manuel – the installation went smoothly now and all is working. I really appreciate the quick response.
