@ngzax

Thanks for posting this. It fixed a failing "gem install spork" for me.

@haf this message usually means you're running rake with a "non standard" rake file or in the wrong directory.

@haf

@rdp it only came after removing the gemspec as shown above. What's a "non standard" rake file? I only have the default install and all I want to run is rake... starts crying

@rdp

rake is working, but you typically run the "rake" command only within a folder that contains either a file named "rakefile" or "Rakefile" (see http://github.com/evanphx/rake ) so you're probably running rake with the wrong "current directory"

@rapcal

Thanks! Fixed spork gem installation for me too.
