Ruby ActiveRecord Basics AR Extensions Model Versioning

rake aborted! LoadError: cannot load such file -- #

Hello, I cannot execute the migration generated by

rails generate paper_trail:install

the migration file generated is this one "very different than the Catlin's one"

class CreateVersions < ActiveRecord::Migration
  def change
    create_table :versions do |t|
      t.string   :item_type, :null => false
      t.integer  :item_id,   :null => false
      t.string   :event,     :null => false
      t.string   :whodunnit
      t.text     :object
      t.datetime :created_at
    end
    add_index :versions, [:item_type, :item_id]
  end
end

when I run

rake db:migrate

I get the following error

rake aborted!

Hi Sebastian!

What are you requiring on line 3 of config/application.rb?

Can you try running rake db:migrate --trace and see if that provides any more info?
