Getting a different error after running `bin/rake` in my terminal for the video on timeline 06:02

In the "Creating the User Model: Part 1" video, at the time 06:02, I am getting a different error message from Jason.

Does anyone know what's going on and how to fix it?

My terminal error output is as follows:

Hi Kabir,

It looks like you're using Rspec 3 instead of 2, which is what's in the course. (I personally struggled with many such errors in the Ruby/Rails courses due to incompatible versions.) Make sure you're using the same ruby/gem versions as Jason.

For your error, in todo_item_spec.rb, change:

require 'rails_helper'

to:

require 'spec_helper' 

Best, Cena

Hi Cena,

Thanks for your response but my todo_item_spec.rb file already has

require 'spec_helper'

on line 1 of that file

Hi Jason can you help look into this error? I've been stuck for a while with it and can't make progress in this course.

Hey Kabir, actually what I am going to try is using Vagrant to run a virtual machine in order to follow along with this course. I forgot about this step since I last worked on the todo list app about 2 months ago, but I think that will do away with the compatibility issues with newer versions of Ruby.

I am also having this problem. Will let you know if I find a solution.

A partial fix seems to be adding the following under "group :test do":

  gem 'test-unit'
  gem 'minitest'

That at least gets the tests running.

Edit: Actually the best solution is probably to follow the old instructions for setting up a Rails environment and use Vagrant to run a virtual machine.
