Subject Re: 1.7.1 Install issue
Date Sat, 06 Jan 2018 21:46:59 GMT
Thanks Dave, you're right it's my erlang install.  It looks as though
there was an initial, possibly partial, install of erlang R14B-04.3 that
colliding with my attempt to put on R19.3.6-1 (which I have running
successfully on other servers). I've tried to start over using yum remove,
but it says that it can't find erlang:

$sudo yum remove 'erlang-*'

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, security
Setting up Remove Process
No Match for argument: erlang-*
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base:
 * epel:
 * extras:
 * updates:
Package(s) erlang-* available, but not installed.
No Packages marked for removal

But somehow it seems to think that 19.3.6 is already installed:

$sudo yum localinstall esl-erlang_19.3.6-1~centos~6_amd64.rpm
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, security
Setting up Local Package Process
Examining esl-erlang_19.3.6-1~centos~6_amd64.rpm: esl-erlang-19.3.6-1.x86_64
esl-erlang_19.3.6-1~centos~6_amd64.rpm: does not update installed package.
Nothing to do

Why this is odd is that when I do:
$erl --version
-bash: /usr/bin/erl: No such file or directory

I expected this since I then tried a manual removal (yum remove said it
couldn't find anything) of erlang by deleting:

/usr/local/lib/erlang (for 19.x)
and the links in /usr/bin/:
epmd, erl, erlc, escript, run_erl, run_test, to-erl

I also removed the various erlang rpm’s in the directory:

The only erlang files left are the ones in the couchdb installation and

Same problem persists - yum still thinks that R19 is installed. Should I
delete any of the above files? Any other ideas are welcome.
