Subject Re: Installing CouchDB on CentOS 5.6
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2011 02:32:49 GMT
Hi, Jim. A slightly newer version is at
https://github.com/iriscouch/build-couchdb. It has only minor
differences. Sorry for the confusion.

My feeling is build-couchdb is *easier* but not *easy* per se. Anyway,
I use it every day.

CentOS is a first-class platform for build-couchdb. If you (or anyone)
has issues, please let me know either by email or by a GitHub bug
report. Thanks!
