Subject Re: Help installing CouchDB on Ubuntu

Randall, I've found the time to test your PPA on Ubuntu Oneiric server 32bit.

Following *exactly* your instructions, I've installed couchdb-1.0.1
from Ubuntu repositories, because you forgot to `apt-get update` after

Then I've tried to "dist-upgrade". This went well, but the old service
failed to stop during upgrade. So I had to kill the old process before
starting the new one. However this is not a problem of your PPA.

Then I've run the test suite from Futon and it worked.

Can I suggest to use Upstart instead of the old system? It's trivially
easy to setup, and it's much more reliable. It never happened to me
that stopping of a service fails with upstart. I can send you the
configuration I'm using if you want.
