Installing Chiliproject on Ubuntu 10.10

[After testing this out, we chose to use the package-managed redmine for now]

Installing Chiliproject with PostgreSQL on Ubuntu 10.10.

Update of Rake broke Vlad

This finally fixed it:

sudo gem uninstall rake -v 0.9.0

Thank you, http://rubygems.org/gems/rake/versions/0.8.7

Updating your Rakefile and syncing content

As when working on any Agaric project that may not have had maintenance done on it in a while, update the Rakefile to be in line with current processes.

First, make sure your Vlad checkout is up-to-date. Go to it cd ~/vlad (in my case, i symlinked Vlad's true location to my home folder so he can find it. On my system Vlad's true location is /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/i686-linux/vlad/) and git pull.

cd ~/code/projectname
mv Rakefile RakefileOLD
cp /home/ben/vlad/Rakefile Rakefile
diff -up

Alan Frankel suggests this information begin with how to create a keyword shortcut in the first place:

(1) Go to "Bookmarks/Organize Bookmarks".

How to use Less Than or Greater Than in a switch statement

Solution

(From rnreekez in the comments, syntax modified to conform to Drupal's more verbose coding standards.)

Technically you want your switch statement to process for all things TRUE.
