Subject Re: building couchdb 1.5 on centos 6.4
Date Fri, 22 Nov 2013 01:17:02 GMT
Hi Vivek!

There was a reason to not have just yum install erlang since it gets
also, for example, wxwidget dependencies which aren't uses in CouchDB
and almost useless on servers.

Is the erlang-asn1 the only missed component?
