[rspec-users] "no such file to load -- sqlite3" error

Since your suggested change to database.yml got rake db:test:prepare to 
work when using mysql for the test database, I went ahead and tried to 
rake spec and rake cucumber for my app.

"rake spec" produced the same error that originally led to this thread:

rake aborted!

*  You are trying to run an rspec rake task defined in
*  /Users/Lowell/rails_projects/genlighten_dr/lib/tasks/rspec.rake,
*  but rspec can not be found in vendor/gems, vendor/plugins or system 

Fortunately, however entering 'spec spec/' works fine (i.e., produces no 
output and a command prompt, since my app currently has no tests.)

I worry that I have some gems in


(rails 2.3.5, for instance, but not rspec or cucumber) and lots of other 
gems in


(another copy of rails 2.3.5, plus rspec and components, cucumber and 
components, and a ton of other stuff)

and that the rake task is confused about where to look.

Any suggestions on whether that might be the issue and if so, how to 
address it?

Thanks once more...
