I'm trying to install the Rails 3.1 Airbrake gem (following instructions from the github page) and I receive the following (I've replaced my api-key with x's in this case for privacy sake):

Macintosh-4:loomio Jon$ rails generate airbrake --api-key xxxxxxxxxxx

      create config/initializers/airbrake.rb
         run rake airbrake:test --trace from "."

    Hi Jon,
    Sorry about the late response.
    I would love to help you get started up!

    Does clicking the simulate exception buttion the the site generate anything?


    Can you email me ( [email blocked] ) the full output of:
    rails generate airbrake --api-key <Your Real API>
    the contents of your Gemfile

    the contents of config/initializers/airbrake.rb

    also are you using bundler and rvm?
    and lastly the ruby version you are using seems to have gotten cut off.
    please also send the output of ruby -v

    Thank you!
