ROR books seem to be out of date

routing errors all the time ,cant get past the welcome sign running on rails .
in win7 and ubuntu systems

latest gems and ruby of course .

tried everything i can think of using all the books and online material.

nothing past localhost:3000 seems to work ,i just get the routing error despite checking all the code with the examples .

application controllers look ok ,apps files ok, .erb files ok .route files ok ,public index file deleted

i have plowed thru all the relevant book examples cross checking them to find an error but i cant .

Post the url you are trying, the full error message, post routes.rb
and the output of rake routes.

No-one here is telepathic as far as I am aware.
