I downloaded the rails package "rails-1.2.5.zip" from "http:// rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=307" and unzipped in to c drive. When I ran ruby script/server, it throws an error "c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/ 1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:in `gem_original_require': ./ script/../config/../ config/environment.rb:8: syntax error, unexpected '<' (SyntaxError)"
Then I opened the environment.rb and edited to remove < at the line number 8. Ran the same command and works fine.
Is this the problem in rails release package?
