Are you trying to run RSpec's own specs or *your* own specs? What
command did you type, in what directory and what console output did
you get? What are your versions of everything relevant? (ruby, rspec,
rails if you use that, rcov, rake, OS etc etc)

I assume you're using Rails then (RSpec is not only for Rails). You
should have a spec:rcov task ready for you! If you have grep, just do
the following to see all spec related tasks:

rake -T | grep spec
