first I got the same errors again...
so I uninstalled ruby
still had the .exe for 1.8.4. 17 rc2 or something on my desktop
installed again
¿and quess what?
It worked!!!
it returned true
now, also rubygems will also do remote instalations again (before I all had
to do it manual)
I'm now waiting for mongrel to install...
done installing woeh I hope it works....
aaargh errors...
no wait it just that the rails gem cannot be found.
let's install that then huh
oke that is installed, let's try again...
it gives this:
>mongrel_rails start
** Starting Mongrel listening at
** Starting Rails with development environment ...
** Rails loaded.
** Loading any Rails specific GemPlugins
** Signals ready.  INT => stop (no restart).
** Mongrel available at
** Use CTRL-C to stop.

looks good, now try firefox... and
damn STILL don't work..
aah I hoped it did.
let's try webrick, nope
maby trough
WHAT it worked, but before reinstall of ruby this had no effect.
back to mongrel

SO tthank you very very very much
how simple it was, just an reinstall of ruby,
now I can test the speed differences for my own.

if the warnings shown here is the same during webrick/mongrel boot,
