Subject Unable to install
Date Thu, 26 Jan 2012 08:43:50 GMT
Hello there,

I tried desperately to install CouchDB on my Ubuntu server, and I run into
too many problems. Buil-couch fails
with the following command:

/root/bin/git submodule update
Initialized empty Git repository in
Cannot get remote repository information.
Perhaps git-update-server-info needs to be run there?
Clone of '' into
submodule path 'dependencies/couchdb' failed

I cannot install from source either. A new version of Erlang (R13B03) needs
to be installed, and it fails miserably as well.

make[3]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/otp_src_R14B03/lib/hipe/rtl'
erlc -W  +debug_info +inline -o../ebin hipe_rtl.erl
pthread/ethr_event.c:98: Fatal error in wait__(): Function not implemented
make[3]: *** [../ebin/hipe_rtl.beam] Aborted

I do not give all the details regarding the various packages, dependencies,
and versions discrepancies I had to solve before that. So I am stuck. Any
help would be appreciated. And thanks a lot for your efforts (but having a
distribution relying on more stable softwares would be welcome).
