redcar load error

Reported by Akshay Gupta | July 23rd, 2010 @ 06:41 AM

Successfully done!
gem install redcar
redcar install

message echoed as "Done! You are ready to go"

Then I tried to run it and tried several combinations to open single file, directory or no file it always gave this error. Not sure what is this about, can you please help he to rectify this, so that I can once try out REDCAR :)

    Can you please tell me what is in the plugins/edit_view_swt/vendor directory of the redcar gem? It looks like it is missing the java-mateview.jar file. Which is strange because it should have installed it during the install.

    yeah, you are right java-mateview.jar is missing, there is a symlink to this file

    don't know why this happened. May be :
    1. I installed the gem without sudo. As I'm having all the gems on my local path.

    After my initial problem running Redcar on ticket #267, I am now having this same error.

    I can confirm that this bug happens with a fresh install of (uninstall the gem, remove the ~/.redcar directory, then reinstall and you should hit the bug). If you go through the install process with the 0.3.8 gem, then uninstall the gem (leaving the ~/.redcar directory intact) and install the gem and do a redcar install it works fine.

    Good sleuthing Steve!

    There was a problem with installation in I've released which should have fixed it.
