I was trying to run
rake gems:install on a rails application that I cloned, and got repeated errors saying:
no such file to load
and then the name of a gem that I had. This apparently can happen when you have gems required before you can get to the section in your configuration file that specifies the different gems that you will be installing. One solution is to manually install the gems until you can do
rake gems:install successfully. This is suboptimal since
rake gems:install won’t work out of the box for others either.
A better solution is to figure out where the problematic
require statements are and remove them. Then the full power of this command can be realized.
