Segmentation fault on rails generate scaffold

Reported by RailsFanatic | July 30th, 2010 @ 09:37 PM

sqlite3-ruby 1.3.1
rails 3.0.0.rc
ruby 1.9.2-rc2

The following seg fault occurs generating a new scaffold in a brand new rails3 app on 3.0.0.rc. This DOES NOT occur on 3.0.0.beta4, so something must have been introduced into the rc since beta4 to cause this.

$ rails g scaffold article title:string body:text /Users/Tom/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.2-rc2/gems/sqlite3-ruby-1.3.1/lib/sqlite3/sqlite3_native.bundle: [BUG] Segmentation fault ruby 1.8.7 (2009-06-12 patchlevel 174) [universal-darwin10.0]

This also happened today on a friend's machine with a totally clean install of rvm, ruby 1.9, and no other gems besides rails and sqlite3-ruby.

Steps to reproduce on a "clean" machine:

(install rvm per instructions at

rvm install 1.9.2
gem install rails --pre
gem install sqlite3-ruby
rails new test1
cd test1
rails g scaffold article title:string body:text

    forgot to mention

    rvm use 1.9.2 --default

    Also, the reference to 1.8.7, even though I'm running 1.9, might suggest the problem is really with the sqlite3-ruby gem, and that somehow an update to the rails3 rc "exposed" it.

    • State changed from “new” to “invalid”
    • Importance changed from “” to “Low”

    I can't reproduce this any longer.
