I am running into issues when am trying to run spork with Rails 2.3.14 with JRuby 1.6.5. Spork starts without issues, but when am running the specs, it fails with the following error:

NotImplementedError: fork is not available on this platform
method_missing at /home/leena/.rvm/rubies/jruby-1.6.5/lib/ruby/1.8/drb/drb.rb:1134

load at org/jruby/

I am using rspec 1.3 and spork version 0.8.4 (as its the suggested version for Rails 2.3)

I tried with nicksieger's fork (, but it was not loading any of the model classes.
