Subject Re: Problems installing CouchDB 1.2.0 in Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS Server (lucid)

Oh yeah. su refused to run CouchDB because I have CouchDB's shell set to
/bin/false. The wiki suggests you give the user a shell but I didn't think
that was a good idea. So that's my work around :-)

There is probably a better way to do the whole thing but I don't know what
it would be... :-)
