Sounds like it doesn't know how to load rake. Try require 'rake' or
something like that on top.

Hi folks,

I've been searching google and I don't think this case has yet been
identified. I've got an older, Rails 2.3 app that is using rspec 1.3.x. We
upgraded Rake to 0.9.1, and now I get tons of deprecation warnings on

I tried adding include Rake::DSL in the class that is monkeypatched, but it
doesn't work (unknown constant etc.). Any ideas? Thanks!!

  require 'spec/rake/spectask'
rescue MissingSourceFile
  module Spec
    module Rake
      class SpecTask
# I added it here
        def initialize(name)
