crazy xcode plist problem

Fri, Jul 10, 2009

Sometimes you wonder. I added a custom property list to an iPhone app I’m working on and Xcode failed to build, complaining:

CopyPlistFile
…
copyplist (No such file or directory)
/Developer/Library/Xcode … /copyplist failed with exit code 71
turned out it was a ruby problem of all things. Xcode relying on ruby to build projects? As suggested in the solution, making a symlink from where Xcode thinks ruby is, to my custom install of ruby sorted the problem:
sudo ln -s which ruby /usr/bin/ruby
