  -''Setup log rotate:''
  
  First off, a lot of people run CouchDB from source which means that in 99% of all installs,
the log rotation is not activated.

  sudo ln -s /usr/local/etc/logrotate.d/couch /etc/logrotate.d/couchdb

  Make sure to familiarize yourself with log rotate. Depending on the space requirements and
business of your installation, you should adjust your configuration so that you don't run
out of disk space. If CouchDB is unable to log, it will crash.

  == 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.
