Ruby-on-Rails Tips

I have been using Ruby-on-Rails on and off on several projects for a number of months now. Every so often I come up against a problem that takes a while to solve. I have therefore recorded the solutions I have found to these problems, mainly for my own reference, but if they do help someone else out all the better. I have only been using Debian for development so these solutions would have to be adapted for other Linux systems and Windows.

  1. Installing RMagick GEM
  2. db:migrate - A quick fix if your database state gets confused.
  3. rflickr/flickr GEM Conflict - How to get your application to use rflickr.
  4. Email Configs - How to get Rails to send emails.
