Error when sending the email

Reported by Miquel Herrera | April 25th, 2009 @ 02:24 PM

Just installed cerberus from the gem and configured it properly with just the email publisher.

Created an error in a test and commited, run cerberus and the error is detected. It tries to send the notification email and logs an error:

-- ArgumentError wrong number of arguments (3 for 2)

Versions are: Rails 2.3.2 ruby 1.8.7 (2008-08-11 patchlevel 72) [i486-linux] Ubuntu 8.10 Linux caparrut 2.6.27-11-server #1 SMP Wed Apr 1 21:53:55 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

Looks like the SMTP lib has changed.

Fixed it quick and dirty to continue working:

in /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/cerberus-0.4.5/lib/cerberus/publisher/netsmtp_tls_fix.rb:8


check_auth_args user, secret, authtype if user or secret


check_auth_args user, secret if user or secret

This fixes the problem but probably not nicely ;)
