Pelíšky (English: Cosy Dens) is a 1999 Czech film directed by Jan Hřebejk. It is loosely based on the novel Hovno Hoří (Czech: „Flaming Feces“) by Petr Šabach.

Pelíšky is a bittersweet coming-of-age story set in the months leading up to the ill-fated 1968 Prague Spring. Teenager Michal Šebek (Michael Beran) develops a crush on his neighbor, Jindřiška Krausová (Kristýna Nováková). Michal’s family is headed by a stubborn army officer who believes that the latest East German Tupperware will sufficiently shame those American imperialists, while Jindřiška’s father is an ardent foe of the Communists saved from prison only because he is a war hero. Much to the parents‘ dismay, the younger generation couldn’t care less for politics. Instead, Michal sports a Beatles mop-top and runs a local film group specialising in Hollywood and pre-war French films, while Jindřiška starts hanging out with a mysterious hipster.

You need to install ruby-debug to run the server in debugging mode

Filed under: ruby on rails — Schlagwörter: — paddy @ 4:00 pm

I wanted to try ruby-debug as described in the book by Patrick Lenz Simply Rails 2.0 in chapter 11. I installed the gem with »sudo gem install ruby-debug«. The following error I got staring the server with debug option prevented me from carrying on with the lesson:

USER@COMPUTER:/var/www/ror$ rails server –debug
=> Booting Mongrel
=> Rails 3.0.3 application starting in development on
=> Call with -d to detach
=> Ctrl-C to shutdown server
You need to install ruby-debug to run the server in debugging mode. With gems, use ‚gem install ruby-debug‘

I googled my ass off to find the solution. Most sites had a hint about incompatibility between ruby, rails and gems. But the solution was much more simple. Just edit the Gemfile and uncomment »gem ‚ruby-debug’« like this:

# To use debugger
gem ‚ruby-debug‘
