Tracking down rake error


#1

I’ve created a Rails project for playing around with something, and
I’ve made a single controller with two actions in it. The tiny app
runs fine, but I decided to try doing a functional test and see what I
got. But ‘rake test’ fails with a not-very-useful error, and I don’t
know where to go to track it down. Google is as confused as I am. :slight_smile:
Here’s what I get when I run rake:

Ryans-MacBook:~/dev/play rew$ rake -v test:functionals
(in /Users/rew/dev/play)
[some stuff deleted for space]
** Invoke db:schema:load (first_time)
** Invoke environment
** Execute db:schema:load
** Execute test:functionals
rake aborted!
wrong number of arguments (3 for 2)

[some stuff deleted for space]

Now, if I run the test directly, it seems to work:

Ryans-MacBook:~/dev/play rew$ ruby
test/functional/welcome_controller_test.rb
Loaded suite test/functional/welcome_controller_test
Started
.
Finished in 0.02188 seconds.

1 tests, 1 assertions, 0 failures, 0 errors

So how can I track down what’s gone busted with my ‘rake test’ stuff?
Any pointers?

#2

had the same issue

open the file - /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rake-0.7.1/lib/rake.rb
and just change line 726 from

fu_check_options options, :noop, :verbose

to

fu_check_options options, [:noop, :verbose]

Had the same issues on my machine. Just fixed it.
