Subject Re: error running couch 0.9

Got it working in RHEL 4 too. The trick was to install spidermonkey
from the source rpm. I also installed the latest Erlang -  but I don't
think that changed anything.

Here are the steps for those interested. It works on EL-5/Cent 5 too -
if you can't find the js/js-devel rpm for Cent5 anywhere.

#bash# export
#bash#  cvs co js
#bash#  cd js/EL-5

(note that i am building from the js rpm source of EL-5 - because EL-4
directory will build only js 1.5 - but we want js 1.7)
#bash#  make
(this will download js-1.7.0.tar.gz )
#bash# cp js-1.7.0.tar.gz /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
#bash# cp *.patch /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
#bash# rpmbuild -bb js.spec

This should create only the binary rpm at /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/x86_64/
(i386 if you have a 32 bit machine).

Install the rpms and then do the normal couch install.
#bash# rpm-ivh  /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/x86_64/js-1.70-3.x86_64.rpm
#bash# rpm-ivh  /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/x86_64/js-devel-1.70-3.x86_64.rpm
