Missing a constant on load.. how can i get around this?


I just installed bundler for a rails 2.3.5 Spree project.

After doing so, I realized that I was getting this error when I went to script/console :

Loading development environment (Rails 2.3.5) /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activesupport-2.3.5/lib/active_support/dependencies.rb:105:in `const_missing':NameError: uninitialized constant Rails::Plugin::OpenID

<strong>My Gemfile :</strong>

gem 'ruby-openid', '2.1.8'

I ran bundle install with no errors.

<strong>>> gem list -d ruby-openid</strong>

Any clues as to what to inspect now? Thanks ahead!


I've seen mention of this before - I think it might have to do with require syntax in the Gemfile...

I just hacked a Gemfile together and threw in...

gem "ruby-openid", :require => 'openid'

Was able to fire up console in an admittedly scaled-down test environment...
