Hi All,

I am trying to work through the book but am currently struggling on section 4.1.3. I have followed the instructions but have been receiving the following errors. I have been stuck on this for hours now, I'm confident that my code matches the text and couldnt implement a solution using google searches after trying in various ways to require factory girl etc.

I am using ubuntu and my gemfile is this:

source ''

gem 'rails', '3.1.0'
gem 'sqlite3'

group :assets do
gem 'sass-rails', " ~> 3.1.0"
gem 'coffee-rails', "~> 3.1.0"
gem 'uglifier'

gem 'dynamic_form'
gem 'jquery-rails'

group :test, :development do
gem 'rspec-rails', '~> 2.5'

group :test do
gem 'cucumber-rails', '1.0.6'
gem 'capybara'
gem 'database_cleaner'
gem 'factory_girl'

Can anybody please help?

Thanks very much.

Re: Cannot load factory girl
Hi Reece,

Could you show us the content of `features/support/env.rb` please? Particularly line 51. I suspect you're attempting to require a directory rather than the files within that directory.

Re: Cannot load factory girl
Hi Ryan,

I think I may have added something I shouldn't have. I have had a few issues and I'm going to start again once i've sorted out my rvm and my gems.

Thanks very much for the support.

Re: Cannot load factory girl
Hi All,

I have fixed the problem that I was having, here's how...

The line that Ryan was referring to was something that I had added in an attempt to fix things. When I started the app again though I encountered the same problem of:

uninitialized constant Factory (NameError)

I fixed this by changing my factory_girl gem to gem 'factory_girl', '1.3.3' as described in this thread:𞫼

Everything is now running smoothly so thanks to the forum.
