Redmine 0.6.0 is not Rails 2.0 compatible. The svn trunk, since r975, is Rails 2.0 compatible. If you want to use redmine 0.6.0 on a box running Rails 2.0, please freeze your rails version for redmine (it won't affect your other Rails applications) by typing this command from your redmine directory:
24 15 Thomas Lecavelier
25 15 Thomas Lecavelier
  rake rails:freeze:edge TAG=rel_1-2-6

h3. I've created a new issue status but I can't use it, it doesn't show up in the status drop-down list.

33 8 Jean-Philippe Lang
Once you've created a new issue status, you need to include it in the workflow.

Say you have created a status named 'In progress' and you want the developers to be able to change bugs from 'New' to 'In progress'.
36 7 Jean-Philippe Lang
Go to "Admin -> Issue tracking -> Workflow", select 'Bug' and 'Developer' then click edit.
37 1 Jean-Philippe Lang
You now see all the transitions allowed for developers on bugs. Check the 'New' -> 'In progress' checkbox and save.

h3. Commits don't show up in the activity until I click on 'Repository'
44 12 Jean-Philippe Lang
45 12 Jean-Philippe Lang
By default, Redmine fetches the new commits from the repository only when you browse it.
46 12 Jean-Philippe Lang
47 12 Jean-Philippe Lang
If you want the commits to be retrieved periodically by Redmine in the background for all your repositories, uncheck 'Autofetch commits' setting and add a cron that runs (with appropriate environment):
48 12 Jean-Philippe Lang
49 12 Jean-Philippe Lang
  ruby script/runner "Repository.fetch_changesets" -e production
