First time trying to learn Ruby on Rails from the (it would seem now badly out of date) Linda.com tutorials... I was trying to rake db:migrate and received this error "/usr/bin/rake: 27:in `require': no such file to load -- rake (LoadError) from /usr/ bin/rake:27" The tutorial assures me that there shouldn't be an error and if there is that I shouldn't worry as I will only have to solve it once... thank god I am reassured... Any insight would be appreciated because I have googled and can find anything that may be of assistance...

did you install rails via the gem or via apt-get? 2008/11/16 gsv <email@example.com>

Hey mike Installed via the gem... command was sudo gem install rails --include-dependencies returned... INFO: `gem install -y` is now default and will be removed INFO: use --ignore-dependencies to install only the gems you list Successfully installed rails-2.1.2 1 gem installed Which was not exactly what I had expected at the time... I have been poking around and it would seem that rake is not installed at all... at least it is not in /usr/local/bin...

Well you have just tried the rails gem, not the rake one. Is rake included in the list outputted by gem list ? Where is gem itself (ie what does which gem say?). In general executable scripts installed by gem would end up in the same place. Fred

OK I just did a gem install rake to see what would happen and got WARNING: Installing to ~/.gem since /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8 and /usr/local/bin aren't both writable.

OK did a sudo install of rails and rake... they are both in /usr/local/ bin and ALSO in /usr/bin (not sure how that happened) I still get the same error message... completely confused now... Cheers

If that is true then removing rake from /usr/bin might help - the shell will then find the one in /usr/local. You could test this out by running /usr/local/bin/rake db:migrate instead of rake db:migrate Fred

Thanks for the help guys... I bit the bullet and trashed everything... then rebuilt the system... but this time used the repositories and then upgrades where needed... then made symbolic links to /usr/local/bin from usr/bin and vóila she works... Hopefully things will go smoother from now Cheers On Nov 17, 3:54 am, Frederick C. <firstname.lastname@example.org>
