Red car hangs indefinitely when I try to launch it.

Reported by Tim Harper | February 15th, 2010 @ 05:19 AM

I have recorded a video demonstrating the issue:


Basically, I haven't been able to get this to work. I have installed from source, and also from the gem (using --pre). I have tried using Java 6 and 5.

Here is a list of my gems installed for JRuby, might this be some help?

    Wow, a screencast with a bug report, good stuff!

    Apple made some modifications to their JVM (or something) and so there's a special flag needed to run on OSX:

    jruby -J-XstartOnFirstThread bin/redcar

    That should fix it for you.
