+ 
+ === Problem ===
+ 
+ Even after doing sudo apt-get install erlang you are getting the following error on ubuntu
8.04:
+ {{{
+ configure: error: The installed Erlang version is less than 5.6.0 (R12B).
+ }}}
+ 
+ === Solution ===
+ 
+ To get a later version without bothering with installing from source edit /etc/apt/sources.list
and locate the following line:
+ {{{
+ deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ hardy universe
+ }}}
+ 
+ Change it to the following
+ {{{
+ deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid universe
+ }}}
+ 
+ Save and then run:
+ {{{
+ apt-get update
+ }}}
+ 
+ You should now be able to install it by doing:
+ {{{
+ apt-get install erlang-nox erlang-dev
+ }}}
+ 
+ Test you version and confirm you see something greater than 5.6.0
