I am not sure what to expect here. I posted this on Sunday and I am noticing that it has not gotten any feedback. Since I am completely DOWN and cannot proceed with my class, I am about to abandon the editor and re-install and re-configure. This is a major setback. It takes me anywhere from 1 hour to 4 hours to do this and I am not really happy about the prospect. I am using the instructions for setting this up for Ruby on Rails based on the Rails Tutorial.
The thing that happened was that I started sublime by typing "subl ." in a terminal session and instead of getting the single window as normal, I got 4 empty windows that would not respond to any keystroke. The editor if started anywhere causes the lockup and I have to kill the process to end it. I hope that this is not software developed by the "Not Ready for Prime Time" developers. It worked flawlessly until Sunday when I was no longer able to edit code. If you can answer me how to fix this before Friday/Saturday when I start my weekend training sessions, I would appreciate it.
Also, if you could tell me what to back up so I can save my configuration, I will save that away and ease my next re-install. This is not the first time that I have used this product. I have started the class on three different platforms, and each place the hardware gave me trouble. So I have gone through the installation many times. I just do not relish doing it again.
