Subject Something broke?
Date Tue, 21 Apr 2009 17:12:22 GMT
I just did svn update and rebuild as usual:

$ svn info
Path: .
URL: http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/couchdb/trunk
Repository Root: http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf
Repository UUID: 13f79535-47bb-0310-9956-ffa450edef68
Revision: 767226
...

$ ./bootstrap && ./configure && make && sudo make install

Now couchdb won't start at all from its init script.

$ sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/couchdb start
 * Starting database server couchdb                                      [ OK ] 
$ ps auxwww | grep couch
brian    27081  0.0  0.0   3008   776 pts/1    S+   18:06   0:00 grep couch
$ 

/usr/local/var/log/couchdb/couch.log is not written to at all (its timestamp
is still yesterday's)

If I `rm /usr/local/var/run/couchdb/couchdb.pid` then it is recreated, but
is a one-byte file containing just a newline.

However it works fine if I start like this:

$ sudo su - couchdb
$ couchdb
Apache CouchDB 0.9.0a767213 (LogLevel=info) is starting.
Apache CouchDB has started. Time to relax.
[info] [<0.1.0>] Apache CouchDB has started.

(giving me normal logs to the console)

This is under Ubuntu Hardy plus Erlang from Intrepid.

Any clues?

Regards,

Brian.
