Randall Leeds commented on COUCHDB-1586:
----------------------------------------

+1 Want to avoid the worst case, IMO, which is when there is no message at all but CouchDB
still doesn't start!

>    Affects Versions: 1.3

> many early installation failures are due to missing permissions / access to key directories.
> - couchdb shell script can check for these before the cryptic erlang VM barfs vomitus

> - couch.erl and couch_app.erl could provide more details on missing erlang applications
etc.
> These are all quick fixes unless somebody has a better idea!
> Any other suggestions?
