[09:29] <Melanie> Is there somebody that could help me with rake db:create ?
[09:29] <Melanie> I try to create Markus DB, but always get a rake aborted!
[09:30] <mikeg1a> Any message beyond that?
[09:30] <Melanie> with undefined method '' for nil:NilClass
[09:30] <mikeg1a> bleah
[09:30] <Melanie> I can do a trace
[09:30] <mikeg1a> Try
[09:30] <mikeg1a> yeah, I was just gonna say that ;)
[09:30] <mikeg1a> I don't know the markus db in particular, but maybe something about a trace will sing to me
[09:31] <mikeg1a> You can use pastie.org or gist.github.com to share the trace - avoids dumping it in IRC
[09:31] <Melanie> ok
[09:35] <Melanie> That's the first time I use pastie.org
[09:35] <Melanie> I paste my txt there?
[09:35] <mikeg1a> Yes
[09:35] <mikeg1a> Then put the URL it gives you here
[09:35] <mikeg1a> Much easier than dealing with 50-line pastest in IRC
[09:36] <mikeg1a> And less likely to get you booted off IRC for flooding
[09:36] <Melanie> ok and than you go on that site and see what I have pasted?
[09:36] <mikeg1a> Yup
[09:36] <Melanie> that's it?
[09:36] <Melanie> good
[09:36] <mikeg1a> that's all there is to it. Just a public clipboard.
[09:36] <Melanie> so it's done
[09:36] <mikeg1a> url?
[09:36] <Melanie> http://pastie.org/613521
[09:36] <mikeg1a> looking...
[09:37] <Melanie> what you see, it's the output I get right before I get a reake aborted!
[09:37] <mikeg1a> hm...and that part is totally normal ;)
[09:37] <Melanie> looks like...
[09:37] <mikeg1a> OK, do you have a config/database.yml file?
[09:37] <Melanie> yes
[09:37] <Melanie> mysql
[09:38] <mikeg1a> It's acting like it's not seeing the development: section there for some reason
[09:38] <Melanie> Do you want me to paste it on pastie ?
[09:39] <mikeg1a> check and make sure that development: is right up to the left margin, and the keys under it are indented by two spaces - YAML is format-sensitive
[09:39] <mikeg1a> or you can just edit your pastie to add it there if you want
[09:39] <Melanie> development is in comment
[09:39] <Melanie> that is probably it?
[09:40] <mikeg1a> That would do it
[09:40] <mikeg1a> When you db:create, rails reads the section of database.yml for your current environment
[09:40] <mikeg1a> by default, your environment is 'development'
[09:40] <Melanie> ok
[09:40] <mikeg1a> So you need to uncomment that section, and put in the right username/password for your mysql install if it's different from what's in there
[09:41] <Melanie> so I uncomment it and comment the production: bloc?
[09:41] <mikeg1a> No need to comment the production block
[09:41] <mikeg1a> That won't be used unless you're in the production environment
[09:41] <Melanie> ok
[09:42] <mikeg1a> Generally, you'd expect to see uncommented development, test, and production blocks in a stock database.yml
[09:42] reid (firstname.lastname@example.org) joined #markus.
[09:42] <Melanie> great
[09:42] <Melanie> I try this
[09:42] <mikeg1a> development = default, what you're using on your workstation; test = used when you run tests; production = used on the live server
[09:42] #markus: mode change '+o reid' by MarkUsBot!n=MarkUsBo@126.96.36.199
[09:43] <Melanie> should I see "default" somewhere in the file database.yml ?
[09:44] <Melanie> According to the INSTALL procedure, I hade to Set environment variable RAILS_ENV --> export RAILS_ENV="production"
[09:44] <mikeg1a> Hm
[09:44] <Melanie> should I set it as "developmenet" instead?
[09:44] <mikeg1a> That'd be the install procedure for the live server
[09:45] <mikeg1a> they shouldn't be telling you to do that for dev ;)
[09:45] <Melanie> ok
[09:45] <mikeg1a> Just leave it unset, Rails will default to 'development'
[09:45] <Melanie> so I change it for "development"
[09:45] <Melanie> and should work?
[09:45] <mikeg1a> Well, that will work for now. You my run into trouble when trying to run test though
[09:45] <Melanie> ok unset
[09:45] <mikeg1a> So you'd be better off in the long run unsetting it
[09:45] <Melanie> ok
[09:46] <Melanie> thanks mikeg1a, I try this
[09:47] <mikeg1a> Holler if it doesn't work, it can be a challenge to get all the moving parts hooked up to start. Gets easier after that.
[09:57] <Melanie> mikeg1a: Now I have an error that says: "The procedure mysql_stmt_row_tell entry point is not available in dynamic link library LIBMYSQL.dll" any idea?
[09:58] <mikeg1a> That may be a version issue...
[09:58] <mikeg1a> you're on windows, right/
[09:58] <mikeg1a> ?
[09:58] <Melanie> yes
[09:59] adamgoucher (email@example.com) joined #markus.
[09:59] <Melanie> it says that the bundled mysql.rb driver has been removed from rails 2.2. Install the mysql gem and try again
[09:59] <Melanie> that's what I did,
[10:00] <Melanie> but a got a lot of no definition for ... per exemple time_set_second...
[10:00] <mikeg1a> That's ok, that's just errors in the mysql rdoc
[10:00] <Melanie> ok
[10:01] <mikeg1a> If that doesn't fix the problem, take a look at http://crypto.stanford.edu/cs142/projects/6/project6.html - there's a fix just above the "Mac OS X instructions"
[10:02] <Melanie> ok
[10:07] <Melanie> looks better now
[10:07] <Melanie> but I still have an error
[10:08] <Melanie> I will send it on pastie
[10:09] <mikeg1a> ok
[10:09] <Melanie> http://pastie.org/613573
[10:10] <Melanie> now it looks more like a setup problem
[10:10] <mikeg1a> hm. that's a new one on me.
[10:10] <mikeg1a> It may be that the encoding option is a problem for windows though
[10:10] <Melanie> there is probably an error with the login or passwd...
[10:10] <Melanie> ok
[10:11] <mikeg1a> Ah, or, yes, could be u/n and p/w...have you done anything to create users on your mysql, or just gone with the stock instantrails install?
[10:12] <mikeg1a> try changing login to "root" and a blank password, if you have not added any users
[10:12] <Melanie> I just gon with the stock instantrails install
[10:12] <Melanie> ok
[10:13] <Melanie> seems to work
[10:13] <Melanie> no more error message
[10:13] <Melanie> I cntinue my intallation, thanks mikeg1a
[10:15] <mikeg1a> Great! I'll be lurking for a bit...time for our homeschool classes to start at this end. But if you run into more trouble, someone should be around.
[10:16] <Melanie> do you know where the db must have been created?
[10:16] <Melanie> is it in markus/db?
[10:17] <Melanie> cause I can not see any .db there...
[10:19] <jerboaa> Melanie, I read your conversation with mikeg1a. First of all, thanks mikeg1a! Regarding RAILS_ENV ...
[10:20] <Melanie> hi jerboaa
[10:20] <jerboaa> The INSTALL file says to set that RAILS_ENV because it's aimed at people who want to set up MarkUs in production
[10:21] <Melanie> ok
[10:21] <Melanie> now it seems that my rake db:create has worked
[10:22] <Melanie> but I would like to see where has been created that db...
[10:24] <Melanie> the next step in the install file suggest to do a rake db:schema:load
[10:25] <Melanie> IT either gives me the folowing error: rake aborted! no such file to looad -- ruby-debug
[10:30] <mikeg1a> Melanie: The database will be stored in a data folder somewhere under mysql, outside of the application tree
[10:31] <mikeg1a> rake schema:load won't work unless you have a db/schema.rb file in the tree...if you don't, you need to rake db:migrate instead...but you probably want to check with someone who has actually set up markus at this point :)

[10:34] <melagaud> jerboaa: I have been disconnected
[10:35] <melagaud> have you received my last error message about rake db:schema:load?
[10:36] <mikeg1a> melagaud: You didn't miss much - http://pastie.org/613596
[10:41] <jerboaa> melagaud, you are missing the ruby-debug gem - have you tried gem install ruby-debug?
[10:42] melagaud (email@example.com) left irc:
[10:43] <jerboaa> I have to leave soon, but I'll be back in about 1.5 hours - mikeg1a thanks for jumping in - btw. you could point Melanie to the logs found here: http://www.cs.toronto.edu/~mconley/irc/markus/
[10:44] melagaud (firstname.lastname@example.org) joined #markus.
[10:44] <melagaud> sorry mikeg1a: porblems with my internet connection...
[10:44] <melagaud> I whent on pastie I look at it
[10:45] <jerboaa> melagaud, I've to leave - have a look here (logs of this channel) : http://www.cs.toronto.edu/~mconley/irc/markus/
[10:45] <jerboaa> you are probably missing ruby-debug (it's quite essential for development)
[10:46] <bwinton> jerboaa: Do you have a DEVELOPMENT file? Like INSTALL, but for people who want to hack on the code...
[10:46] <jerboaa> I'll be back in about 1.5 hours
[10:46] <melagaud> thanks jerboaa
[10:46] Melanie (email@example.com) left irc: Read error: 110 (Connection timed out)
[10:47] <jerboaa> not really, but there's this: https://stanley.cdf.toronto.edu/drproject/csc49x/olm_rails/wiki/InstallationRorRadrailsDebian
[10:47] <bwinton> Maybe melagaud could work on adding Windows instructions to that, as she runs across the various problems?
[10:48] <jerboaa> bwinton, melagaud totally, good idea :-) so please feel free
[10:48] <jerboaa> see you later
[10:48] <bwinton> (I did the same thing for Basie, back when I was using Windows.)
[10:53] <melagaud> bwinton: I should have write it down... I will look at the IRClog file and try to do something...
[10:53] <melagaud> mikeg1a are you still avail?
[10:53] <bwinton> You can always uninstall everything and try again, too. (Although you probably don't want to. ;) )
[10:54] <mikeg1a> still around but a bit slow b/c dealing with my own kids
[10:54] <melagaud> bwinton: I am not masochist ;-)
[10:56] <melagaud> mikeg1a: no problem... I have a db/schema.rb file in the tree
[10:56] <mikeg1a> ok, so schema:load should work. Hae you installed ruby-debug?
[10:56] <mikeg1a> gem install ruby-debug
[10:57] <melagaud> I dont remeber having done anything like that...
[10:57] <melagaud> I try
[11:01] <melagaud> mikeg1a: Great! I did gem install ruby-debug, and it has installed some stuff and now rake db:schama:load is running and tables are being created in db:-)
[11:03] <mikeg1a> :)
[11:17] <melagaud> next step in the install file tells me to do rake markus:instructor, with first name, last name and user name
[11:18] <melagaud> I was still issing files. I did gem install fastercsv
[11:18] <melagaud> so I try again markus:instructor... and I get a no such file to load -- svn/repos
[11:20] <melagaud> Do I have to create a repository?
[11:21] *** adamgoucher notes that this whole continued conversation is a wealth of things for the markus product backlog
[11:23] <mikeg1a> melagaud: I recall others have hit that same roadblock, but I don't recall the solution
[11:23] <reid> I'm looking at the docs right now to see if I can help.
[11:24] <reid> I know the actual repos get created on demand, but it must be looking for some setup information.
[11:25] <adamgoucher> rake markus:setup would be your friend

[11:33] <Melanie> sorry, I still have been disconnected, That's the first time I have that much internet connection problem... I went on log and see taht reid has joined the conversation
[11:34] <Melanie> reid: You think I have to create a repository?
[11:36] <reid> I'm not good at the low level details, but I suspect you need to find a rake task to run that does some setup.
[11:36] <reid> I don't think you need to create repos by hand.
[11:36] <adamgoucher> rake -T will list all the tasks
[11:37] <Melanie> So I do a rake -T?
[11:37] <reid> yes
[11:37] <adamgoucher> rake -T will just pase all tasks available to you
[11:37] <Melanie> to see something that looks like setup?
[11:37] <adamgoucher> thats the plan
[11:38] <Melanie> ok
[11:38] <adamgoucher> or anything namespaced as 'markus'
[11:38] <reid> there's a rake repos:build
[11:39] <Melanie> yes there is a rake repos:build... I try?
[11:39] <adamgoucher> might be worth making that markus:repos:build for obviousness as plugins can clutter that top level namespace
[11:39] <reid> but that looks like it will create repos for existing groups
[11:40] <adamgoucher> where is the markus code located? i should likely grab it :)
[11:42] <Melanie> adamgoucher: sorry for my english, I am not sure I understand your previous intervention
[11:42] <reid> svn co https://stanley.cdf.toronto.edu/svn/csc49x/olm_rails/
[11:42] <adamgoucher> don't worry about it. isnt directly related to what you are doing
[11:42] <Melanie> ok
[11:43] <reid> adamgoucher: I agree with the namespace comment.
[11:44] <reid> trying to find the code that does the instructor setup.
[11:58] <reid> Looks like a bug to me. The admin creation code wants to give permissions to the new instructor for all the existing repositories, but there shouldn't be any repos at this point.
[11:58] <reid> I wonder if the path just needs to be created?
[12:01] <reid> Sorry Melanie, I wasn't much help and I have to run to another meeting.
[12:02] <Melanie> ok
[12:02] <Melanie> I will try your last suggestion
[12:02] <reid> It sounds like you are getting pretty close.
[12:02] <Melanie> and create the path to see what appends
