[Backgroundrb-devel] newbie how to install

I'm following the directions at http://backgroundrb.rubyforge.org/

I've installed chronic and packet gems.

Then it says: you can install the plugin from git:

git clone git://github.com/gnufied/backgroundrb.git


I did this at the root level of my rails app.

$ git clone git://github.com/gnufied/backgroundrb.git
Initialized empty Git repository in /Users/xxxxx/rails/xxxxx/ 
remote: Counting objects: 1862, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (732/732), done.
remote: Total 1862 (delta 1078), reused 1852 (delta 1073)
Receiving objects: 100% (1862/1862), 1.73 MiB | 885 KiB/s, done.
Resolving deltas: 100% (1078/1078), done.

So the git repository of backgroundrb is at the root level of my rails  
app. Now I'm supposed to run the rake task:

$ rake backgroundrb:setup
(in /Users/xxxxx/rails/xxxxx)
rake aborted!
Don't know how to build task 'backgroundrb:setup'

(See full trace by running task with --trace)

Now I'm stuck. Any suggestions? Thanks!
