Hi there -

I get the following error, do you have any suggestions to configure the app once it's been cloned from the git?

$ rake db:migrate
(in /home/tim/Development/learning/railsform/complex-form-examples)
rake aborted!
no such file to load -- /home/tim/Development/learning/railsform/complex-form-examples/config/../vendor/rails/railties/lib/initializer
(See full trace by running task with --trace)

$ script/server

I got it working by removing the vendor/rails folder (it's empty anyway), and adding a log folder.

(also had to comment out the RAILS_GEM_VERSION line in the environment.rb file so that it'd use my current 2.3.2 version of rails, but you may not need to do this)

Rails is included as a sub module. Run "git submodule init", "git submodule update"

can you add vendor/rails to .gitignore and add an empty log dir to the project to solve this issue?

"git submodule init", "git submodule update"

This worked perfect for me. Thanks.

Would be nice if that were in the README.
