 [Wed Jan 11 16:40:15 2012] [error] mod_ruby: /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.9.1/rubygems/custom_require.rb:36:in `require': /home/user/.local/rubygems/lib/rockit/token.rb:138: invalid multibyte char (US-ASCII) (SyntaxError)

=> revert previous step (that is, emerge mod_ruby for ruby 1.8), then add to /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/01_oddb_vhost.conf:

 RubyAddPath /home/user/.local/rubygems/lib
 RubyAddPath /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/sbsm-1.0.3/lib

also put into /etc/env.d/99rubylib :

  • apache error_log:

 [Wed Jan 11 15:39:59 2012] [error] mod_ruby: ruby:0:in `require': no such file to load -- sbsm/trans_handler (LoadError)

=> 1) remove gentoo ruby1.8, compile git version of mod_ruby against /usr/local ruby1.9

   2) add 'RubyAddPath /home/user/.local/rubygems/lib' to /etc/vhosts.d/01_oddb_vhost.conf
  • add entry to /etc/hosts, add the same vhost to /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/01_oddb_vhost.conf
  • setup apache / mod_ruby

 * ERROR: apache2 failed to start


 add RUBY to APACHE2_OPTS in /etc/conf.d/apache2,
 replace /home/masa/ywesee with /var/www in /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/01_oddb_vhost.conf

 * apache2 has detected an error in your setup:
 apache2: Syntax error on line 39 of /etc/apache2/httpd.conf: ServerRoot must be a valid directory

  • import database
 sudo -u postgres createdb -E UTF8 -T template0
 cd /var/lib/postgresql/8.4/data/
 mkdir sql
 cd sql
 cp ~/user/'' .

gives an error

  • Several gems (money -v '3.7.1', needle -v '1.3.0', paypal -v '2.0.0', polyglot -v '0.3.3') generate errors like this:
 ERROR:  While executing gem ... (ArgumentError)
 Illformed requirement ["1.0.4, 1.0.3"]

but re-running the script (with just these gems) seemed to work -- probably a more compatible version of a toolchain gem (like rake) was installed. So, moving these gems to the bottom of the script.
