Subject Re: init terminating in do_boot

Let us know about your progress. Who knows, maybe others are interested in
those RPM's. :)

If you need more details or if you have any problem during the
installation, let me know. I started to like CentOS and it became my
favorite after Ubuntu (which is my favorite since years). The problem with
CentOS is its outdated packages (CouchDB is in the repository with version
1.0.2 with Erlang/OTP R12B... :( ) and missing nice applications (like Yaws
which I managed to install it from source with its latest version on the
same Erlang version). But that is not a point to discuss it here.
