I am trying to use webkit instead of selenium in my cucumber features. I am on Ubuntu 10.04, I have Qt 4.8.4, I could compile different versions of the gem (0.13.0 and 0.14.2), but I always getting this error on the first step:
visit "/users/login"

This is the error I get
/home/franz/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p374/gems/capybara-webkit-0.14.2/bin/webkit_server: symbol lookup error: /home/franz/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p374/gems/capybara-webkit-0.14.2/bin/webkit_server: undefined symbol: _ZN9QListData11detach_growEPii

Errno::EPIPE: Broken pipe

I get exactly the same resultt with versions 0.13 and 0.14.2

@MadWagon, it seems that either you're compiling against one version of Qt and running against another, or that something is amiss with your Qt libraries. Check out the output of ldd /home/franz/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p374/gems/capybara-webkit-0.14.2/bin/webkit_server and see if there are any missing dependencies. You may also want to try re-installing Qt.

I'll close this issue due to the long time of inactivity.
