Third Party's Issue
Target version:
ruby -v:
ruby 1.9.3p194 (2012-04-20) [i386-mingw32]


When including "watir-webdriver" the interpreter stops working and the server occasionally segmentation faults.

Updated by aslovik (adam slovik) over 8 years ago

The controller has:

require 'watir-webdriver'
b = :chrome

These lines work fine in a script that I can run from the command line or in irb. That is, I have the gem installed etc.

When I include it in the controller, it seems to run - that is, it opens a browser and navigates to the website, but then I get the message that the interpreter has stopped running.

The view has very minimal html in it and runs fine if I omit the calls to watir-webdriver.

This happens no matter what browser I open (tried IE, firefox, and chrome).

gem list outputs: watir-webdriver (0.6.1)

I am marking this is third party issue due to lack of feedback by the author. No evidence of a ruby bug has been presented.
