+ == Note on installing on  Ubuntu Desktop flavors ==
+ 
+ If you're *not* running Ubuntu server, but rather running some variant
+ of Ubuntu desktop, I'd strongly recommend compiling from source and
+ keeping the default prefix of /usr/local.  Ubuntu comes standard with
+ couchdb-bin, and uses desktop-couch with tools like  Ubuntu
+ One, gwibber, and evolution. But, it Lucid Lynx ships with version
+ 0.10.0.  This is a long-term support item, but that doesn't mean
+ Canonical will be releasing 0.11 anytime soon.
+ 
+ So, to install a parallel version of current CouchDB on an Ubuntu
+ desktop system, you should download build from source, being careful to keep the
+ default install prefix of "/usr/local", and following all of the above instructions about
libraries and dependencies.
+ 
+ 
+ Then, after installing CouchDB, you can still get it to start at boot
+ as normal, but because 0.11.x is in /usr/local, just running
+ 
+ {{{
+ sudo update-rc.d couchdb defaults
+ }}}
+ 
+ is probably *not* going to do the right thing.  What is seems to do is
+ look in the /etc/init.d directory, where it will likely find the 0.10 version
+ of CouchDB.
+ 
+ Instead, you have force the system to use the version of CouchDB
+ installed in /usr/local.  There should be an option to
+ update-rc.d that will tell it to look in /usr/local/etc rather than
+ /etc, but I couldn't find it.
+ 
+ A brute force way to make it work is to do something like:
+ 
+ {{{
+  sudo mv /etc/init.d/couchdb /etc/init.d/couchdb.0.10.donotuse
+  sudo ln -sf /usr/local/etc/init.d/couchdb /etc/init.d/couchdb
+  sudo update-rc.d couchdb defaults
+ }}}
