Indeed, there is no such file…

vendor/generators, ls:

rspec_controller        rspec_model

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

i think this could be a version-conflict. rspec-generator needs rspec
0.5.15, while you are running rspec 1.1.11. i see you have the older
version installed. still, you are using the latest rspec-version.
maybe this results in your problem with missing source files.

Thanks for the reply. I simply deleted all rspec-related gems and
reinstalled. It works now.

After doing that, these are all the rspec gems I have:

rspec (1.1.11)
rspec-rails (1.1.11)

rspec_generator disappeared. I guess it got folded into rspec-rails.
