Problems freezing rails

I've got a site at Dreamhost, and am trying to freeze rails, but am
getting this error message:

[larchmont]$ rake rails:freeze:gems --trace
(in /home/.input/cmills/fsilg.dreamhosters.com)

I created a new test rails app on the same server and had no problem
freezing rails. Any ideas out there?

Are you sure you're running this from your RAILS_ROOT directory?
Looks like it can't find the rakefile.

I'm running it in the correct directory, and the rakefile exists as

Here is the output:

You don't need my help to read through that list and find the freeze
task :slight_smile:
Do just check it's not already frozen ( does vendor/rails exist?) -
those task names look pretty old - possibly before the whole setting
your version in environment.rb was added
