No Rakefile found (but I see it!)

newbie. going thru the Depot tutorial.

googling all over for clues have left me empty handed.

os x 10.4.10, rails 1.2.4, rake 0.7.3

AFAICT, the installs of rails and rake went fine using gem install.

the command: rake db:migrate

returns an error: No Rakefile found (looking for: rakefile, Rakefile,
rakefile.rb, Rakefile.rb)

I am running the command from the project directory /Depot, and there is
a file “Rakefile”

What are the permissions for the Rakefile supposed to be? I can’t find
that in the rake docs.

Trace is supposed add enlightenment, but I don’t know how to interpret
the output.

$ rake db:migrate --trace
rake aborted!

Any clues appreciated

Egads – nevermind. I thought I was in the /Depot dir, but I was not.
.

Sorry.
