Subject Re: building couchdb 1.5 on centos 6.4
Date Fri, 22 Nov 2013 05:58:57 GMT
I see.  Unfortunately I was in a rush so did not install the 
dependencies one by one...

Its sure that erlang-asn1 was missing.  But I am not sure it was the 
only one (since it was quicker to get the whole erlang package).

Thanks
Vivek
