Rspec: `should': uninitialized constant RSpec::Expectations (NameError)

Hi all, tried posting this to rspec group but w/o success so hope someone on this list might be able to help me out as am kind of stuck:

Can anyone tell me why I am getting this error trying to ‘rake spec’:

‘kernel.rb:27:in `should’: uninitialized constant RSpec::Expectations (NameError)’.

Can’t seem to find a useful reference online to solve. This project I was working on a few months ago and got put aside, meanwhile I rebuilt my mac. So something is off but not sure what.

Using rvm, Rails 3.0.3, Ruby 1.9.2, my gemfile.lock installs fine and shows the following for rspec. I actually deleted my rvm gemset and re-installed the bundle just in case but same error.
