Install Rhomobile’s Rhodes Gem from Source

To do so you will have to do follwoing commands


First of All please be sure you have Ruby 1.9.3 or if this post is outdated the version they recommend at their webiste.


Then install “listen” gem ,which is needed from the Rhodes’s 5th version


gem install listen


by default manifest is not generated so  we have to make


rake gem 


this will fail, but manifest.txt would be generated.


Then just do


gem build rhodes.gemspec 

You will see a lot of warnings and in the end if it is built OK you will see for example

Successfully built RubyGem
Name: rhodes
Version: 5.0.2
File: rhodes-5.0.2.gem



Then downgrade gem version


gem update –system 1.8.27



Then to install do


gem install rhodes-5.0.2.gem -V


Have Fun!







451 Temporary local problem – please try later (redmine and not only)

Getting  451 Temporary local problem – please try later  ?


I had this 451 error on my redmine tracker installation.

It can be very different reasons.  For example a DNS missconfig. But my server was OK and after loosing 2 hours I have found out the problem. I had an ClamAV installation, which was not started after server reboot, so the mails are not sent, because there was a panic error on sending, as the smtp server (dovecot) was  assuming clamav is there but it was not started.


sudo /etc/init.d/clamav-daemon start


Solved for me the problem. Maybe you have kaspersky or whatever.


Have fun.

Hope this will help you

Collaboration made easy with Bitrix24

Lately was searching for a good collaboration tool for one of our small IT project team, and discovered for me a tool, which forced me to forget about  open source alternatives.  Please meet Bitrix24.

Bitrix24- Social Intranet, Task and Project Management, Activity Stream, Online Storage, CRM, Instant Messenger, File Sharing, Calendars and much more!








The most amazing  functionality is the social networking experience. You get the news and updates about projects and colleagues  in a Facebook like stream. Easy file sharing, integrated CRM with invoicing and task management makes it very strong tool to work with colleagues.

Here is a video which gives you fast overview of advantages of Bitrix24




Free 5GB space with 12 collaborators was enough to test out the usability of Bitrix24  . As the projects info grows, the profit will grow also, so to upgrade to a paid package is not a big deal.

Bitrix24  Social Intranet  Task and Project Management  Activity Stream  Online Storage  CRM  Instant Messenger  File Sharing  Calendars and much more

And for those who don’t trust company commercial information to be on 3rd party cloud , they can purchase self-hosted version of the product.  But it’s not a must, because Bitrix24 offeres 7 layer of protection for your data. You can see details here .

Nice things are not over. Via FREE mobile apps you can stay  in touch with your colleagues and business partners 24/7. Using the free Bitrix24 App, you can access your social intranet and collaborate on projects from anywhere! You can view contact details of your co-workers, read news in your Activity Stream, manage files, schedule events, monitor tasks, post comment and ‘like’ things that are being discussed, as well as work with the CRM. Apps you can download in  the Apple App Store and on the Google Play Market. Tablets are welcome.


Only feature for an IT  company I saw was missing support for source code management , where tasks can be linked to git commits and vice-versa . That would made Bitrix24 unbeatable. Let’s hope that it will be implemented soon. But that doesn’t bother us to use it and enjoy the flexibility and visibility it provides.










Rhomobile Pinch Zoom on/off in Android

There is some cases , that you will need to enable/disable pinch zoom of your app on Android devices  . Especially we had problem with the HTC android devices, because of the customised android browser from HTC which don’t accept metaview  parameter which is disabling pinch zoom. So pity!  But what to do then , when your app is broken on such devices when zoomed?
Only answer is to disable pinch zoom support totally before to build. You should find rhodes folder in your Linux/Mac/Windows machine.
