In order to try to get to the bottom of this, I looked in the log files.

In there I find the following message immediately on starting couchdb:-

[error] [<0.49.0> OS Process died with status: 127
[error] [<0.49.0>] ** Generic server <0.49.0> terminating
** last message was in {#Port<0,791>,{exit_status,127}}
** when server state == {os_proc,"wireless",#Port<0,791>,
** reason for termination ==
** {exit status,127}

There are then a whole series of other messages, and this wireless message
seems to be repeated often.

This is a brand new install, what is it trying to do and why has it died?
And why it is referencing "wireless"?
