Subject Re: Computer died while trying to load couchDB. Help!
Date Sat, 25 Apr 2009 02:46:03 GMT

This is the second time in a couple days that I've seen reports of a
traceback like that. The last time it had something to do with
Firefox. AFAIK that bit of traceback is not at all related to CouchDB.
I can say for sure that its not Erlang. When you say you went to look
up libtoolize on the net you were using Firefox or some other browser.
The libtoolize error means you don't have a proper libtool
installation. You should be able to solve that with something like
`sudo apt-get install libtool` on the command line.

My only suggestion would be to try a different browser.
