RAKE ABORTED!

I downloaded the projects files from the "build a simple ruby on rails application" stage 3. when i rake db:migrate the files it said to install tzinfo. When i did it work. the bundle and everything. but now it says :

rake aborted! Unable to determine name from existing gemspec. Use :name => 'gemname' in #install_tasks to manually set it. /Users/macuser/treehouse/projects/treebook-stage-3/Rakefile:2:in `<top (required)>'

and i don't know how to fix this.

I believe if you follow along here: https://github.com/bundler/bundler/issues/2057 you will be able to find your answer. Looks it has something to do with the directory that Ruby is installed in.

Thanks but that is not helping. I don't have a gem_helper.rb or del.rb. Thanks for trying. Any more tricks??
