I have just updated my radiant gem to the latest version. Then I
created a new application which works fine so far. Then I installed
the Gallery Extension from
extensions/gallery/rdoc/, following the instructions. But when I call
rake radiant:extensions:gallery:install, I get the following error:

rake aborted!
uninitialized constant AppExtension

I have no idea what's going on. Any hint how to debug?

Generally, when you run into the unintialized constant ___Extension
error, it means a directory is misnamed.  The reason for this is
Radiant takes the directories under vendor/extensions one by one and
transforms them into class names like so:

fuzzy_bears => FuzzyBearsExtension
page_attachments => PageAttachmentsExtension

This is how Radiant finds the extension file and class.  That said, I
suspect you checked out/exported the extension directly into
vendor/extensions (it's looking for an AppExtension which would be in
the 'app' directory -- a standard directory *inside* individual
extensions).  You should delete the files and try again, with checking
out the files into vendor/extensions/gallery.

p.s. FuzzyBears are dead... Long live FuzzyBears! ;)

Thanks for your detailed answer! Radiant seems to have some problems
with my Sqlite installation, but using MySQL and following your
advice, I was able to install the gallery extension.
