permissions note

Reported by Sarah Vessels | April 15th, 2009 @ 04:36 PM | in 0.2

I untarred the package in /usr/local/src, and when I attempt to run bin/redcar, it doesn't have permission to create some directories in cache/. It might be nice to make note of the necessary permissions/ownership of directories somewhere in the README.

svessels@computer:/usr/local/src/redcar$ ./bin/redcar 
Permission denied - /usr/local/src/redcar/cache
/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutils.rb:243:in `mkdir'

Chowning the directory to be owned by me let bin/redcar run fine. :)

    • Tag changed from documentation, shellcommand to app, cache, documentation
    • Milestone set to 0.2
    • State changed from “new” to “resolved”

    Good point, I've made it store the cache in the user's home directory to fix this.

    Eventually we will want users to be able to have different bundles installed so this makes sense in the long run too.
