Restful_Authentication test failure


I've been searching for an answer and couldn't find one -- so I
thought I'd post my question.

I am using rails 2.3.2, Restful_Authentications and Role_Requirement.
I haven't created any users yet or limited any models just yet. When
running rake I get the following failure:

  1) Failure:
    [/test/unit/user_test.rb:12:in `test_should_create_user'
     /test/unit/user_test.rb:10:in `test_should_create_user']:
Name has already been taken.
<false> is not true.

But I also get:
/usr/local/bin/ruby -I"*/lib" -I"*/test" "/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/
gems/rake-0.8.4/lib/rake/rake_test_loader.rb" "test/functional/

Errors running test:units and test:functionals!

Does anyone know how I can fix this?


What version of Restful_Authentication are you using? Can you post perhaps the top 10 lines of your test/unit/user_test.rb and test/functional/users_controller_test.rb files?

Not sure of version -- installed plugin about 3 days ago.

Take a look at this ticket:

and this (short) thread a few days ago:

Not a solution, but at least some explanation of what’s happening.

My user_test.rb already had:
class UserTest < ActiveSupport::TestCase
Instead of
class UserTest < Test::Unit::TestCase

And changing it to
class UserTest < ActiveRecord::TestCase
did not change the error I am getting.

Is there something else I'm supposed to be doing?


The next thing is to get someone more clever than me to chime in with a real answer. :slight_smile:
