How to --debug rspec2 w/rails3?

I’m diving into rails3 and rspec2. Things are a bit rough…

New application using RVM w/ruby 1.8.7 p249, Rails (3.0.0.beta3), RSpec
(2.0.0.beta.7), ruby-debug (0.10.3), ruby-debug-base (0.10.3)

I created a .rspec file in my Rails.root with the following

–debug
–colour
–format progress

Then I add a ‘debugger’ statement in one of my .spec files, and run
‘rake
spec’, I get the following:

“debugger statement ignored, use -d or --debug option on rspec to enable
debugging”

Running “rspec -d ./spec/**” gives the same result. So, am I calling
debugger wrong, or is it not working yet?

Thanks!

Looks like it’s broken, as it should be working. Please do two things
(I’m on my way out the door):

  1. enter an issue at http://github.com/rspec/rspec-core/issues
  2. try this:

rdebug rspec ./spec

Done. http://github.com/rspec/rspec-core/issues/issue/24

  1. try this:

rdebug rspec ./spec

Yep, that works fine.

Thanks for your fast reply!
