one thing what you do is just uninstall all the gem and install which
ever gem you needed.
say if you wanted to install rails 1.1.6 after uninstalling all gem,
just try install only that
gem rails-1.1.6 it wil through any dependency error, so install all of
them(or you can use -y option), then every-thing will
be fine again. Then run whatever rake taks you need. (may be freezing
you can set in your config/environment.rb RAILS_GEM_VERSION to what
ever rails version you
need. Here you don't need to freeze you gem since you already
specified your RAILS_GEM_VERSION.
Even you give environment variable like this (export
You can move your gem folder, like this, just type
gem env --> for example if it gives /home/raghuk/local/lib/ruby/gems/
move /home/raghuk/local/lib/ruby/gems to /home/raghuk/local/lib/ruby/
gems-new then reinstall all the gems.
after this whenever you want to use new-gems just set GEM_PATH and
GEM_HOME environment variables to /home/raghuk/local/lib/ruby/gems-new/
or what ever you want.(should contains installed gems)
I guess one of this might solve your problem. Presently i am following
the last approach,
did you uninstall all the dependency gems for rails 1.2.4 , then
installed rails 1.1.6 and the dependency gems.
if yes, just type the command' gem env' and 'gem dependency', then
post the output here.
and one more thing is what do you mean by application is not working,
just try this tell me the output.
Go to your application(project). this command will clear all the log
files under log/ directory. So, back up if necessary those log files.
So, try 'rake log:clear' after that, start your webrick server, then
try connecting if it throws any error or if you are not able to
your application., just see the log files under log directory and do
paste it here. And post only those log output environment, for which
webrick server is running.
yes, in rails version >= 1.2.3 there some helper methods which are
deprecated, one of them is start_form_tag and end_form_tag
if you freeze your gems just it copies all the gems from your gem
installed directory to your application's vendor/ directory, and
starts using that.
i just wanted to know what's there in RecipeController's search method
and what's there is in your config/routes.rb file, under your
when you type gem dependecy which version of rails it shows, whether
it shows both or only one.
if it shows both means any new project created from now on will use
the latest gem. Since, you are creating a new project it's better
to use the latest gem, otherwise you have to take pain of migrating
your application from 1.1.6 to 1.2.4(or which ever you use).
SInce 1.2.4 compared to 1.1.6 is much beter, meaning the way code is
written internally, lot of optimization has happed. (I know
this is secondary. but just informed)
Still if you want to use 1.1.6 it will surely work, if you have done
the environment.rb file change for RAIL_GEM_VERSION.
you have to change it like this
RAILS_GEM_VERSION = '1.2.4' unless defined? RAILS_GEM_VERSION
RAILS_GEM_VERSION = '1.1.6'
you can see all the deprecated things from 1.1.6 to 1.2.4 here.
you can solve this buy commenting this line in your config/routes.rb
that's not a error, it's just a warning, as i said before, some of
helper methods(start_form_tag,end_form_tag.etc) are deprecated in
rails version >= 1.2.3
so that's just warning saying those methods will not available under
rails 2.0. But after doing this, is you application is working fine.
Go to your application console like this.
(under your project).
"script/console" run this file it gives a prompt. then type "puts
RAILS_GEM_VERSION" what's the value you are getting?
if you are getting 1.1.6, then it's correct. Otherwise still you are
using newer rails gem.
And even i have two versions of rails, i generated a new project with
rails myproject # command
and i just changed RAILS_GEM_VERSION to 1.1.6
that's it everything is still working fine.
