I get the following error on debian squeeze unstable when starting the pod:

$ bundle exec thin start
>> Using rack adapter
Jammit Warning: Asset compression disabled -- Java unavailable.
/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/yaml.rb:133:in `load': syntax error on line 29, col 2: `  socket_secure: false' (ArgumentError)

The full error is at the pastebin. Any suggestions?

Turns out this was a syntax error in the application.yml file, the previous line to the one that was erroring - socket_secure: did not have a space betweent the key and value:


instead of

 ca_file: '/where/it/is'
