Rails 3.0pre produces a conflict on new project creation

Reported by Conrad Taylor | December 31st, 2009 @ 03:28 AM

Generating a new Rails application using Rails 3.0pre, produces a conflict because it appears to want to create a development.rb file a second time:

$ ruby 1.9.1p376 (2009-12-07 revision 26041) [i386-darwin10]

$ rails tmp
      create  README
      create  .gitignore
      create  Rakefile
      create  Gemfile
      create  app
      create  app/controllers/application_controller.rb
      create  app/helpers/application_helper.rb
      create  app/models
      create  app/views/layouts
      create  config
      create  config/routes.rb
      create  config/application.rb
      create  config/environment.rb
      create  config/environments
      create  config/environments/development.rb
    conflict  config/environments/development.rb
Overwrite /Users/conradwt/rails.dir/examples/tmp/config/environments/development.rb? (enter "h" for help) [Ynaqdh]

    • State changed from “new” to “open”
    • Assigned user set to “José Valim”

    I could not reproduce on master:

    git clone git://
    ruby rails/railties/bin/rails tempapp

    Can you?

    I performed the following operations:

    git clone git://
    cd rails
    git submodule init
    git submodule update
    sudo rake install
    rails tempapp

    Next, this happens consistently following the above on my MacBook Pro (Intel) but I wasn't able to reproduce
    this on the PowerMac G5 (PPC). Now, I'm seeing the same issue on MacBook Pro (Intel) when I try the following:

    git clone git://
    ruby rails/railties/bin/rails tempapp

    Finally, this doesn't happen when using Rails 2.3.5.

    This is odd! I definitely cannot reproduce here or anyone in the core team. Have you tried reinstalling 1.9.1 in rvm? (I use 1.9.1 from rvm as well)

    I installed Ruby 1.9.1p376 using MacPorts on both laptop (i.e. MacBook Pro) and desktop (i.e. PowerMac G5).

    I cannot duplicate at all. This problem still happens? Any extra information?

    • State changed from “open” to “stale”

    Ok, I'm closing this one. I will reopen if you have any information on how to reproduce it.

    Jose, I cannot reproduce this issue either after upgrading to the Rails 3.0.0 beta.
