Hi,

The time has come for me to explore migrations, and the first thing I've
found
is that it seems to be unaware of calls to the gettext function _() for
translating validation messages:

** Invoke migrate (first_time)
** Invoke environment (first_time)
** Execute environment
** Execute migrate
rake aborted!
undefined method `_' for Account:Class
/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activerecord-1.13.2/lib/active_record/base.rb:991:in
`method_missing'
/var/www/rails/easyeikaiwa/trunk/easyeikaiwa/config/../app/models/account.rb:22

account.rb:22
  validates_length_of :name, :within => 4..40, :message => _("name was
too
short/long")

Any ideas?

Hi,

Thanks to the guys on #rubyonrails - turns out I just had to require
gettext in environment.rb instead of application.rb.

cheers
