Error running rspec on Debian

I’m new to Rails and I was planning on trying out RSpec. When I try to
execute the rspec command on Debian v6.0.1, I get the output below:

[email protected]:~/Desktop/rails_projects/sample_app/spec$ bundle exec
rspec spec/controllers
/home/k4ru050/.rvm/gems/[email protected]/gems/rspec-core-2.0.1/lib/rspec/core/configuration.rb:306:in

The versions I’m using are: Rails v3.0.5, Ruby v1.9.2 installed via
rvm.

Any suggestions on how to find a workaround for this issue?

Thanks,

Carlos

I just wanted to confirm that you’ve verified that the exact same
codebase has its specs run correctly on a different OS (or flavour of
linux, even)?

Best,

`load’: no such file to load –

First, this particular error has nothing to do with rspec or your OS.
The rspec command is being invoked from
~/Desktop/rails_projects/sample_app/spec, but the last argument is
spec/controllers. Unless there is a
/home/k4ru050/Desktop/rails_projects/sample_app/spec/spec/controllers
directory (with two nested ‘spec’ directories), this error is raised.

That said, on any OS, you must run the rspec command from the project
root.

[email protected]:~/Desktop/rails_projects/sample_app$ bundle exec
rspec spec/controllers

This is necessary because there are too many variables for RSpec to
reliably be run from other locations and detect the LOAD_PATH correctly.

HTH,
David
