First off, yes, I did follow the "Using Engines With Edge Rails" post on
the Engines wiki.

So here's my problem.
In ActiveSupport 1.2.5, there was a class called RootLoadingModule which
had a parent class LoadingModule in
ie. RootLoadingModule < LoadingModule < Module
My problem is that there is no RootLoadingModule class or LoadingModule
class in Edge Rails now, and it seems that the Engines plugin depends on
those classes being there.

plugins/engines/lib/dependencies_extensions.rb - line #72
class RootLoadingModule < LoadingModule
    # hack to allow adding to the load paths within the Rails
Dependencies mechanism.
    # this allows Engine classes to be unloaded and loaded along with
    # Rails application classes.
    def add_path(path)
      @load_paths << (path.kind_of?(ConstantLoadPath) ? path :

I have the very latest from Engines via. svn. Is anyone else having the
same problems.

posting and found that I was pointing to the old engine repository.
