Hi After adding
          config.gem "rspec-rails", :version => "~> 1.3.2"
 line in config/environment.rb file. i am getting such type of error.

[Amit at localhost MyApplication]$ ruby script/server

=> Booting WEBrick
=> Rails 2.3.4 application starting on
can't activate rspec-rails (= 2.0.0.beta.19, runtime) for [], already 
activated rspec-rails-1.3.2 for []
/usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:230:in `activate'
/usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:35:in `require'

/usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:in `require'
Missing these required gems:
  rspec-rails  ~> 1.3.2

You're running:
  ruby at /usr/bin/ruby
  rubygems 1.3.6 at /home/Amit/.gem/ruby/1.8, /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8

Run `rake gems:install` to install the missing gems.

I try $ rake gems:install but not install any thing and i also try

[root at localhost MyApplication]# gem uninstall rspec-rails-1.3.2
ERROR:  While executing gem ... (Gem::InstallError)
    cannot uninstall, check `gem list -d rspec-rails-1.3.2`
[root at localhost MyApplication]# `gem list -d rspec-rails-1.3.2`
[root at localhost MyApplication]#

I don't know about this error and why it is coming.
