Topic: Swapping between Windows and Linux
I'm not sure if this is strictly speaking a deployment issue but it is regarding moving a rails app between two machines.
I'm mostly developing on Windows because that's all I have at work, however when I get the chance to work from home I use Linux. I'm using RoRED on Windows (and InstantRails) and Cream (vim) on Linux.
I've noticed occasional compatibility issues before but today they seem to be going crazy. The only recent change is that I now have the acts_as_ferret plugin and the appropriate ferret gem on each system. Since coming back from my Linux box this morning various pages are just showing up blank. The first page to do so was the search page that I was working on. I tried re-writing the page but that didn't work. Finally I managed to copy some code from elsewhere that does a similar thing and this worked. I now can't see another page which was working fine on Windows yesterday and which I swear I haven't touched today. I'm not getting any errors up.
Can anyone think of any reason why there may be problems? If it makes any different I'm using SVN to move files between the two. But then, this file hasn't been changed or anything in the last couple of days.
