My first night with RoR. I am having trouble getting the first application (chapter 2) from "Ruby on Rails 3 Tutorial" by Michael Hartl to go into production on Heroku.com. At first the it complained about assets not being pre-compiled and I am on Windows 7 so I tried to re install the app using Celadon Cedar stack and got the below error. It asked for a report so I am putting one in. I am puzzled why Heroku defaults to postgres when I originally declared sqlite3 in the gemfile but that is a separate issue. The application installs fine with Bamboo Stack but the "Users" Scaffold fails to run. Sorry for the N00Bn3SS...

This is an issue with Heroku and not bundler itself. SQLite3 is not installed on heroku's cedar stack. If you need more assistance, please file a support ticket with heroku: http://support.heroku.com.
