I've tried uninstalling rspec 1.3 and rspec 2.0 (et al) My specs are in my rails directory (ie project/spec) I'm on leopard (10.5.8) Just to be safe, I blew out the bundler directories ( rm -rf ~/.bundle/ ~/.gem/ .bundle/ vendor/cache/ Gemfile.lock) and the ~/.rvm directory

First thought: that sucks!

Second thought: this has happened before.

Third thought: http://www.google.com/search?q=rspec+no+output

I'm sure you'll find your answer in there. If someone else has the answer at the top of his/her head, please follow up here.

ps - there is a project up on github that works with early beta versions of rspec-2: http://github.com/rsanheim/rspec-rails23 but it has yet to be updated to rspec-2.0.0. Someone should fork and update it. I will eventually if nobody else does, but it's going to be a few weeks before I can get to it.
