I have created the database

when migrating, here is the result

$ rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV=production
(in /home/studyoz/lib/redmine)
rake aborted!
no such file to load -- iconv

you know, there's a damn cool and newest search engine name google and give you the same solution as in that forum, some thread behind. Wait... That's not new at all. Someone just say me google is online since 1998... Damn! Open the vault door! No more fallout, there's life outside!

Erm... Where are my pills? Maaaaaaaaaaaama!

Inspite of this thomas guys obnoxious little vent above, really couldn't find much of direct help with either google or forums search either before or after my OP. But along they way i did learn a fair bit about freebsd, which i'm new to. so for anyone else new to bsd, who's trying to get redmine going you need to install ports/converters/ruby-iconv.

cd /usr/ports/converters/ruby-iconv
make clean && make install

apparently there's also a portinstall command that all bsd'ers know about, which makes it even simpler, but thats still downloading and installing for me.

Here's hoping thomas finds his pills
