Subject Re: errors in tests

Sorry to double post, but I just did an svn up and now it's a  
different error message from couchjs - and a crash when you try to run  

configure line:

./configure --with-js-lib=/usr/local/spidermonkey/lib64 --with-js- 

testing couchjs:

# /usr/local/bin/couchjs /usr/local/share/couchdb/server/main.js
/usr/local/lib/couchdb/bin/couchjs: error while loading shared  
libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or  

# locate

Now it can't find it! Well, it's an improvement : )

# ls -la /usr/local/spidermonkey/lib64/
total 2072
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root    4096 May  1 07:04 .
drwxr-xr-x  5 root root    4096 May  1 07:02 ..
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 1219254 May  2 05:55 libjs.a
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root  883089 May  2 05:55

Everything's being done as root so i don't think it's a permissions  

Running couchdb now crashes with a crashlog. I've zipped it and placed  
it at if you're  

thanks again,
