Rails 3 Beta 4 -- Success!

After watching this series of Rails 3 screencasts, I decided to give Rails 3 a try.

Reading the beta release notes, I updated to the late rvm gem, then proceeded to install Ruby 1.8.7-p174. While the installation was successful, and I was able to create a Rails 3 app, I couldn't run rake. Any attempt to invoke it, even just to list rake tasks, gave me a cryptic error about Rail's delegate method.

Next, I tried to install REE's flavor of Ruby 1.8.7, and that failed to install.

So lastly, I tried 1.9.2-preview3, and that worked. Woohoo!
