Subject Re: couchdb initial crash

Of course the solution would end up just solidifying my noob status.

It looks like the problem was that I was not correctly setting the  
LD_LIBRARY_PATH for the couchdb user.  I had it set for my user  
account so all of the tests worked (e.g. checking couchjs), however  
when I issued the "sudo -u couchdb couchdb" command the path was not  
set for the couchdb user and the errors came back.

Thanks for your help everyone.  I absolutely appreciate it,
