Rails 2.1.0 without a Database
If you are running the just released Rails 2.1.0 and have disabled ActiveRecord, you will likely run into problems launching script/server.
The culprit is the new config/initializers/new_rails_defaults.rb, which should test to see if ActiveRecord is loaded.
It’s a very tiny patch, so until the next Rails release is out, you can easily apply the patch manually.
