Subject RE: Linux Alternatives for CouchDB
Date Mon, 24 Oct 2011 15:20:00 GMT
CouchDB 1.01 is setup as a package in Ubuntu. I can install it easily.

I tried to follow these instructions to install CouchDB 1.1

Rake ran forever and then errored out, but I don't have the error.

Since I'm not fully up to speed on Linux, I think I need to start over. I
keep getting into endless loops trying to troubleshoot problems. I was
hoping someone on this list could just say: "We've been using _______, and
CouchDB 1.1 installs smoothly with _______."

If you think I'm looking at this wrong, please let me know!

Hi Clarke,

It would be helpful if you could provide with the errors you ran into 
during installation. I installed CouchDB 1.1.0 from scratch (including 
Erlang/OTP R14B03) in CentOS 6.0, but I don't suppose it would make any 
difference if I would use Ubuntu.
