I am following the book and has made fixtures changes according to listings 5.38, 5.39, 5.40 and changes according to 5.42, 5.43 and 5.44.

When I run rake, I got a lot of error messages, mostly complaining about fixture 'one', like:
No fixture with name 'one' found for table 'tasks'
...

Looking at tasks_controller_test.rb, I see a lot of reference to fixture 'one', like

def test_should_show_task
get :show, :id => tasks(:one).id
assert_response :success
end

My questions are:
1) Does anyone else have this problem?
2) Are listings 5.38-5.44 correct? Or did Peter skip something important?
3) If listings 5.38-5.44 are correct, what should I try to look for?
4) How does login_as :ludwig map to fixture 'one'?

Thanks.

If you are working through the examples with Rails 2.3.3 and are having problems with tests try the following.

For users.yml do you fixtures like this:
ludwig:
login: ludwig
email: lvb@pomodo.com
first_name: Ludwig
last_name: van Beethoven
salt: 20b3c17b8f085f29a91def32258eb121b88371e4
crypted_password: 5fff39a8fdc9f6f9b5fe883b0b019c23b5d6ae39 # foooo
created_at: <%= 5.days.ago.to_s :db %>

For tasks, locations, and projects use this format:
ludwig_task_one:
user: ludwig
project: ludwig_project_one
location: ludwig_home
name: Finish eighth symphony
notes: Done. Yay!
next_action: false
completed: true

As you can see there are no need for IDs just use the titles for the relationships.
Use the fixture titles in place of the :one in the tests as well to get around that issue.

Also if you use ActionController::TestCase as the base of your test controllers, there is no need for the fixture statement as long as you have fixture :all in your test_helper.rb file. Therefore the top of the functional test will look like this:

require 'test_helper'
require 'tasks_controller'

# Re-raise errors caught by the controller.
class TasksController; def rescue_action(e) raise e end; end

class TasksControllerTest < ActionController::TestCase
def setup
super
login_as :ludwig
end

ActionController::TestCase handles @controller, @request, and @response for you. Be sure to call super first in the setup method however.

These changes got the tests to pass for me.
