webrat 0.4.1 fails to find Spec::Runner with system wide gem rspec-rails 1.1.12

Reported by joahking | February 7th, 2009 @ 02:50 PM | in 0.4.2

This are my versions:
*** LOCAL GEMS *** cucumber (
webrat (0.4.1)
rspec (1.1.12)
rspec-rails (1.1.12)

on a rails 2.2.2 project

when I do
$ cucumber features/manage_cukes.feature /home/joahking/dev/rails/cukes/vendor/rails/activesupport/lib/active_support/dependencies.rb:442:in load_missing_constant': uninitialized constant Spec::Runner (NameError) from /home/joahking/dev/rails/cukes/vendor/rails/activesupport/lib/active_support/dependencies.rb:77:inconst_missing' from /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/webrat-0.4.1/lib/webrat/rspec-rails.rb:8 from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:in gem_original_require' from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:inpolyglot_original_require' from /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/polyglot-0.2.4/lib/polyglot.rb:53:in require' from /home/joahking/dev/rails/cukes/vendor/rails/activesupport/lib/active_support/dependencies.rb:155:inrequire' from ./features/support/env.rb:16 from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:in gem_original_require' from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:inpolyglot_original_require' from /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/polyglot-0.2.4/lib/polyglot.rb:53:in require' from /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/cucumber-' from /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/cucumber- each' from /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/cucumber-' from /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/cucumber- execute!' from /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/cucumber-' from /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/cucumber- from /usr/bin/cucumber:19:in `load' from /usr/bin/cucumber:19

the problem goes away if I vendored rspec and rspec-rails:
$ ruby script/plugin install git://github.com/dchelimsky/rspec.git -r 'tag 1.1.12' $ ruby script/plugin install git://github.com/dchelimsky/rspec-rails.git -r 'tag 1.1.12'

then webrat does find the Spec::Runner

you can find example code in this gist: http://gist.github.com/59920 specially after:
A 2? lets upgrade cucumber (webrat is at its lattest version)

    I saw this same error (rails 2.3.2, webrat 0.4.4, cucumber 0.3.3, rspec 1.2.6, rspec-rails 1.2.6). Was running cucumber features on an older rails project.

    Fixed it by updating the cucumber support files: env.rb, paths.rb, and also lib/tasks/cucumber.rake.
