How to: Solve gem loaded specs mutex

Use bundler > 1.15 to fix Gem::LOADED_SPECS_MUTEX (NameError).

Given the following project:

ruby -v ruby 1.8.7 bundler -v Bundler version 1.13.7 gem -v 1.8.30 rails -v Rails

Running specs or features resulted in:

uninitialized constant Gem::LOADED_SPECS_MUTEX (NameError)

The previous settings described in Maximum version of Rubygems and Bundler for Ruby 1.8.7 and Rails 2.3 (even the rails version was rails 3.2 and not 2.3) seems not to work here, so I used (also described in the card) a bundler version > 1.15 (exactly 1.16.1). This fixed the issue.

Once an application no longer requires constant development, it needs periodic maintenance for stable and secure operation. makandra offers monthly maintenance contracts that let you focus on your business while we make sure the lights stay on.
