[rspec-users] Problems with RESTfully generated helpers

ActionView::TemplateError in 'Edit Artist Page should render the edit
artist form'
label_artist_url failed to generate from {:controller=>"artists",
:action=>"show"} - you may have ambiguous routes, or you may need to
supply additional parameters for this route.  content_url has the
following required parameters: ["labels", :label_id, "artists", :id] -
are they all satisfied?
On line #3 of app/views/artists/edit.rhtml

    1: <h1>Editing artist</h1>
    2:
    3: <% form_tag label_artist_path, :method => :put do %>
    4:   <%= render :partial => 'form' %>
    5:   <%= submit_tag 'Save' %>
    6: <% end %>


My spec looks like:

require File.dirname(__FILE__) + '/../../spec_helper'

describe 'Edit Artist Page' do
  before do
    @label = mock_model(Label)
    @artist = mock_model(Artist)

    assigns[:label] = @label
    assigns[:artist] = @artist
  end

  def render_edit
    render :template => 'artists/edit'
  end

  it "should render the edit artist form" do
    render_edit
  end
end
