Topic: rspec root_path

Hi
I'm just starting with rspec and BDD.

I have installed rspec 2.6 plus capybara. I'm trying to do the simplest of tests with no luck

In the application I have a menu item which links to root_path which is defined in routes.rb.

scope "(/:locale)" do
   resources :whiteboards
   root :to => "whiteboards#index"
  end

However in the first request spec neither

get root_path

nor

visit root_path

are recognised by rspec

get whiteboards_path

is recognised.

Is there something that I'm missing?

Regards
