I understand that open source is supposed to be this grand open-air market place of development goodies that is watched over by a wonderful group of wizards who are all-knowing and all-seeing, etc.
But from here it just looks like a snow-ball fight. everybody flinging contributions and you got snow up your nose, snow in your ears and a bloody cut over your eye.
However, I just want to open Ruby Mine and work.
AND I have to keep wasting a whole afternoon or an evening trying to get the vershickende gems installed.
(I aint' gonna ask why they gotta be called something cute like 'gems' or 'beans' like I'm in some chocolate factory world or at the top of a beanstalk... no I'm not going to.)
Could you PLEASE give me a list of at least one complete group of gems (with the correct version of each gem) that will make the RAILS and whatever basic other features of Ruby Mine 3.0 or 3.01 'just work'?
And please make the list include only the correct versions of all the correct modules that are actually available in the online repositories?
Do I have to spend another trial day wasting my time trying to figure out your insane group of attach install screens that show a list of gems as 'installed' but then they can't be 'attached' because the attach screen wants to install the gem but it can't find it because its not in any repository and why is that (no please do not explain it, just give me the list)?
Oh, wait, maybe if you just put a status column in the grids? Nah... that would be too easy, no.. I didn't really ask that, forget I said anything.
And please try to avoid giving me an explanation of why things are the way they are instead of just giving me a list or whatever it is that will just allow me to set these things and finally start to work after six months?
And why don't you package a working selection of these components with your ide? no forget that! I don't want to know, I just want to work!
