Hi, I don't know what to do. I upgraded to Rails 2.3.2 (from 2.2.2) and everything worked fine. Then I installed the gem gettext_rails following this manual: http://www.yotabanana.com/hiki/ruby-gettext-rails-... At some point I realised that I cannot start my Application anymore nor run any rake tasks. I don't know exactly what happened. I just have the idea that I messed up my gems at some point in the past when I changed the directory, trying to run two Rails versions parallel. So I cleaned up my gems using $ sudo gem cleanup But still, when I run a rake task I get the following error: $ rake -T (in /Users/xxx/Sites/zzz) rake aborted! no such file to load -- active_support /Users/Olaf/Sites/customcuddle/Rakefile:9 When I try to start the server $ script/server --trace /Library/Ruby/Site/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:36:in `gem_original_require': no such file to load -- active_support (LoadError) from /Library/Ruby/Site/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:36:in `require' from /Users/Olaf/Sites/customcuddle/vendor/rails/railties/lib/commands/server.rb:1 from /Library/Ruby/Site/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:in `gem_original_require' from /Library/Ruby/Site/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:in `require' from script/server:3 I don't understand this. I'm running the newest version of rails and everything should be fine. $ gem list *** LOCAL GEMS *** actionmailer (2.3.2) actionpack (2.3.2) activerecord (2.3.2) activeresource (2.3.2) activesupport (2.3.2) acts_as_ferret (0.4.3) capistrano (2.5.5) cgi_multipart_eof_fix (2.5.0) clickatell (0.5.0) columnize (0.3.0) daemons (1.0.10) dnssd (0.7.1) fastthread (1.0.7) fcgi (0.8.7) ferret (0.11.6) gem_plugin (0.2.3) gettext (2.0.0) gettext_activerecord (2.0.0) gettext_rails (2.0.0) haml (2.0.9) highline (1.5.0) hoe (1.12.1) hpricot (0.8.1) image_science (1.1.3) libxml-ruby (1.1.3) linecache (0.43) locale (2.0.0) locale_rails (2.0.0) mini_magick (1.2.3) mocha (0.9.5) mongrel (1.1.5) mysql (2.7) needle (1.3.0) net-scp (1.0.2) net-sftp (2.0.2) net-ssh (2.0.11) net-ssh-gateway (1.0.1) openrain-action_mailer_tls (1.1.3) rack (0.9.1) rails (2.3.2) rake (0.8.4) RedCloth (4.1.9) redgreen (1.2.2) rmagick (2.9.1) rspec (1.2.2) rspec-rails (1.2.2) ruby-debug (0.10.3) ruby-debug-base (0.10.3) ruby-debug-ide (0.4.5) ruby-openid (2.1.4) ruby-yadis (0.3.4) rubyforge (1.0.3) rubygems-update (1.3.1) RubyInline (3.8.1) rubyist-aasm (2.0.5) rubynode (0.1.5) sources (0.0.1) sqlite3-ruby (1.2.4) syntax (1.0.0) termios (0.9.4) ZenTest (4.0.0) Please help!!!

I am assuming that you don't have a statement like; RAILS_GEM_VERSION = '2.2.2' unless defined? RAILS_GEM_VERSION Since you were doing fine until you installed the gem in question. If you have not updated it for Rails 2.3.2 then do so and try again. If that does not work then my advice would be to: a) back up everything, and b) downgrade again to 2.2.2 by installing Rails 2.2.2 gems and activating that version by uncommenting the statement RAILS_GEM_VERSION = '2.2.2' unless defined? RAILS_GEM_VERSION And then try again. Until you get to the troublesome gem. Then if you can install it as a plugin so that you can debug it in your application environment instead of the global environment. It is a step-by-step process and you have to test every step of the way.

Thank you very much for your help. It was a very stupid mistake and is solved now: After upgrading to rails I removed the /vendor/rails folder, because I freezed rails. Then I've run $ rake rails:freeze:gems to freeze the new version (2.3.2). I forgot that I had to do this as root, so the freezed rails version was incomplete. I didn't notice that... This caused the include problem. To solve this problem I just had to run in my Application folder: $ sudo rm -r vendor/rails $ sudo rake rails:freeze:gems Make sure to also run the remove command as root, just trashing the folder in TextMate will not work. Thanks anyway! Bharat R. wrote: > I am assuming that you don't have a statement like; > > RAILS_GEM_VERSION = '2.2.2' unless defined?

There's still something weird going on - you shouldn't have to run the freeze task as root... What exactly is "incomplete" when you run it as a regular user? --Matt J. On Apr 10, 4:34 pm, "Olaf S." <firstname.lastname@example.org>

It only copied the folder vendor/rails/railties and says that my Gem folder isn't writeable, so all the other folders are missing. But when I try to reproduce this behavior everything seems to work, even though I still get some error messages: Do you have any idea what that could mean? My Gem Folder is on a Mac OS Leopard: GEM_HOME=/Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8 But I had 2 folders once because - as I said - I wanted to run to different Systems on one machine (pretty stupid...).
