I am a total Ruby/RoR n00b having just started reading the 'Ruby on Rails Bible' book two days ago. I've been trying to work out through the introductory 'Your first ruby on rails application' section, but I've run into problems already! The book goes on about creating the view templates and naming them with the *.html.erb extension, but I get run-time errors when I use that extension. I have seen some other RoR sites that use the *.rhtml extension so I tried that instead and that seemed to fix my problem. But isn't that the old rails file naming convention? I want to use the proper/new convention but I'm not sure what I need to do .. perhaps update Ruby or Rails or ??? on my computer? Or is it something I have misconfigured? I'm developing on a Mac and these are the versions of Ruby and RoR I currently have installed: ruby 1.8.6 (2008-08-11 patchlevel 287) [universal-darwin9.0] Rails 2.3.2 If this helps, when I run "gem list" I get this output: *** LOCAL GEMS *** actionmailer (2.3.2, 1.3.6) actionpack (2.3.2, 1.13.6) actionwebservice (1.2.6) activerecord (2.3.2, 1.15.6) activeresource (2.3.2) activesupport (2.3.2, 1.4.4) acts_as_ferret (0.4.1) capistrano (2.0.0) cgi_multipart_eof_fix (2.5.0, 2.2) daemons (1.0.9, 1.0.7) dnssd (0.6.0) fastthread (1.0.1, 1.0) fcgi (0.8.7) ferret (0.11.4) gem_plugin (0.2.3, 0.2.2) highline (1.2.9) hpricot (0.6) libxml-ruby (0.9.5, 0.3.8.4) mongrel (1.1.4, 1.0.1) needle (1.3.0) net-sftp (1.1.0) net-ssh (1.1.2) rails (2.3.2, 1.2.6) rake (0.8.7, 0.7.3) RedCloth (3.0.4) ruby-openid (1.1.4) ruby-yadis (0.3.4) rubynode (0.1.3) sqlite3-ruby (1.2.1) termios (0.9.4) Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Here is an example of the type of error I am getting when my view templates are *.html.erb files: Showing app/views/contact/show.rhtml where line # raised: No such file or directory - /Users/kevin/dev/Ruby/sandbox/ contactlist/app/views/contact/show.rhtml Its like its expecting my views to be .rhtml files, not .html.erb files

> Its like its expecting my views to be .rhtml files, not .html.erb > files Cleanup your rubygems, you have a very old version installed, and maybe in your Rails. Define in environment.rb: RAILS_GEM_VERSION = '2.3.2' unless defined? RAILS_GEM_VERSION
