Subject Make fails on GeoCouch installation (Ubuntu 10.04 desktop)
Date Sun, 16 May 2010 21:49:58 GMT
I'm having problems installing GeoCouch (a custom version of CouchDB for
geospatial) on my machine.

Any ideas on where I'm going wrong? My installations notes are below.




Installing GeoCouch on a new install of Ubuntu desktop 10.04

Following Volker Mische's instructions:,CouchDB,Python,Erlang,geo

... and the instructions listed here:

sudo apt-get build-dep couchdb
sudo apt-get install xulrunner-dev libicu-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev libtool
sudo apt-get install automake

You have bootstrapped Apache CouchDB, time to relax.

sudo apt-get install erlang-dev

./configure --with-js-lib=/usr/lib/xulrunner-devel-

You have configured Apache CouchDB, time to relax.

sudo make dev

Fails with these errors:
