Vendored Gems Not Being Activated With Rake Tasks

Reported by John Dzak | March 10th, 2009 @ 10:24 PM

Observed in rails >=2.3 when rails gems are vendored.

When Rakefile calls boot.rb, load_initializer (for class VendorBoot) will stub gem specs, but will not add_gem_load_paths.

If you have another gem that requires a vendored gem, you will receive an error message like..

rake -T

rake aborted!

can't activate activesupport (>= 2.0.0, runtime), already activated activesupport-2.3.1

Before Fix

def load_initializer

 require "#{RAILS_ROOT}/vendor/rails/railties/lib/initializer"


After Fix

def load_initializer

 require "#{RAILS_ROOT}/vendor/rails/railties/lib/initializer"
