Hi couchP,

This is a known bug when running a mixed system (running lenny and then
installing CouchDB 0.11.0-1 from testing/unstable). There's more information in
the bug report:

In summary from the ticket, you need to install libjs-jquery from testing as
well. There wasn't a version number associated with the jquery dependency, and
the .live() function isn't available in the version of jquery in stable. I'll
be releasing a fix for this in 0.11.0-2 either this weekend or early next week.

Also, please feel free to report Debian related bugs directly to Debian - you
got semi-lucky that I follow this list. :-) Information on how to report bugs
can be found at A list of existing
tickets for the CouchDB package is at
