Hi all, anyone have an idea why I am getting an error trying to 'rake

'kernel.rb:27:in `should': uninitialized constant RSpec::Expectations

Can't seem to find a useful reference online to solve. This project I
was working on a few months ago and got put aside, meanwhile I rebuilt
my mac. So something is off but not sure what.

Using rvm, Rails 3.0.3, Ruby 1.9.2, my gemfile.lock installs fine and
shows the following for rspec. I actually deleted my rvm gemset and re-
installed the bundle just in case but same error.

    rspec (2.2.0)
      rspec-core (~> 2.2)
      rspec-expectations (~> 2.2)
      rspec-mocks (~> 2.2)
    rspec-core (2.2.1)
    rspec-expectations (2.2.0)
      diff-lcs (~> 1.1.2)
    rspec-mocks (2.2.0)
    rspec-rails (2.2.1)
      actionpack (~> 3.0)
      activesupport (~> 3.0)
      railties (~> 3.0)
