I've seen this before with a newer version of Rack

Can you post the output of "gem list"

I think its rack 1.3.2 that's causing the problem.

try running the following:

gem uninstall -v=1.3.2 rack

Then boot rails again.

You're getting the error message because the rails server can't find Rails 2.3.11.

I see from your gem list that you have Rails 2.3.5 installed, along with parts of rails 3.1.0.

First thing I'd do is uninstall all the 3.1.0 gems (activemodel, activerecord, ...) with
   gem uninstall activemodel -v=3.1.0  # do the same for all the others)

Then I'd try the gem install again:
   gem install rails -v=2.3.11

Then do another gem list to see what you have.

this is crazy. how can i just start over and remove all gems from the ruby version. If i install a new patch version of 1.8.7 that will allow me to start from scratch right?

rvm can be really confusing at times, as it picks up the gems it thinks are right.

What I've found works for me is that I explicitly set a default ruby (an explicit patch level, not head; otherwise the patch-level can change) and a default gemset so that everything is locked down.

rvm --default <ruby>
rvm gemset <gemsetname> --default

You also have to create the gemset the first time around (see http://beginrescueend.com/gemsets/basics/)

Once this is working correctly, rvm will display the ruby/gemset combination whenever you cd into your project.
