Subject Re: Installing 0.11 on RHEL 5
Date Mon, 14 Jun 2010 21:46:12 GMT
RHEL really only supports fairly old software in general. For anything 
bleeding edge or current, you'll need to build your own rpms, or find a 
well maintained repo. You can use the srpm for curl to build an updated 
package. However, is going to be hard to work around with 
those solutions.

It's likely going to be better to just download and install the latest 
curl into /usr/local/lib.
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/

Then add /usr/local/lib to your lib path:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

see quite a bit of chatter on the mailing list from April, but it's not clear to me what the
best way to satisfy the cURL>= 7.18 and other dependencies are. The “Installing on RHEL
5” on the wiki ( is insufficient for
CouchDB 0.11.
