Hi, I'm having problems getting the lsapi to work, I hope someone here can shed some light for me. Firstly, I'm running... ruby 1.8.6 (2007-06-07 patchlevel 36) [x86_64-linux] gem 1.0.1 lsws 3.0.3 on Ubuntu 6.0.6 LTS. All build tools, ruby, etc have been installed from the main apt repositories. My ultimate aim is to get a Camping install up and running with lsapi but I'm not even close to that yet. I've create a virtual host with what I think are the correct settings (relevant config options at the end of this post). I basically set up a new VH with settings from here but substituting out the rails specific stuff. At this point I'm using the example testlsapi.rb file as my bootstrap.

As a minimal example. puts 'foo' require 'lsapi' puts 'foo' prints 'foo' then returns to the prompt. on running the same script through irb I get the following error on requiring lsapi LS>/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/input-method.rb:97:in `readline'LS : LS1wrong argument type LSAPI (expected File)LS (LSTypeErrorLS ) LSA from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/input-method.rb:97:in `gets' LS; from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/irb.rb:132:in `eval_input' LS> from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/irb.rb:259:in `signal_status' LS; from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/irb.rb:131:in `eval_input' LS> from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/ruby-lex.rb:189:in `call' LSC from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/ruby-lex.rb:189:in `buf_input' LS> from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/ruby-lex.rb:104:in `getc' LS> from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/slex.rb:206:in `match_io' LS ... 9 levels...

This thread mentioned it's a known bug that was fixed. I'd be grateful if someone could tell me if this is the expected gem behaviour in these circumstances? Many thanks.
