Thanks for the detailed stacktrace. This is interesting, it really
sounds like a difference between Solaris and the Mac. If I have a
minute today I'll look at the paperclipped source and see if I can
figure out what's going on. It's acting like the extension is trying
to delete the directory before all the files have been removed. Maybe
Solaris throws an EEXIST when an rmdir is attempted on a non-empty
directory but Linux/Mac throws something else, or nothing.
Unfortunately I don't have access to a Solaris machine to test on.
Solaris has a reputation for being "different"--most of the Mac and
Linux command line tools and libraries are pretty similar, but the
Solaris libraries have been their own forever. The first thing I
would do when encountering a Solaris box that I was responsible for
was to install most of the Gnu suite.

It works great on my Mac but then when I upload it to Joyent's
Solaris servers it just doesn't delete all the files. I don't
really understand what the problem is. It's something to do with
the folder or files existing maybe when they shouldn't be. It seems
to be related more to the environment and paperclip then the
The problem is I get an application error and in the logs it says:
Errno::EEXIST (File exists - /users/home/..../web/public/assets/7):
I wish I understood this better or knew how to work around it. On
my mac it seems to delete all the files and the folder without
issue. On Joyent it deletes one file and causes an application
error. If I refresh 4 times it will delete all the files and
continue on but without deleting the folder.
I'm using the most recent release of paperclipped and I've tried it
with 0.6.9 and .7rc2 but it doesn't work. I can't believe I'm the
only experiencing this problem or at least that will experience it.
It's a good extension and to those out there that are able to use it
I'm envious. I hope someone is able to fix this someday and I'll
try it again.
By the way, is there a clean way to remove the paperclipped extension?
