Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1640) build instructions broken for Debian
Date Fri, 11 Jan 2013 22:22:14 GMT
Miles Fidelman created COUCHDB-1640:

             Summary: build instructions broken for Debian
                 Key: COUCHDB-1640
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Build System
            Reporter: Miles Fidelman

The instructions for building 1.2.1, from source, on Debian Stable (Squeeze) are completely
broken - both the INSTALL.Unix file in the distribution, and the wiki page at

For one, the version of spidermonkey (libmozjs) is older than the minimum required for Couch

For two, even after installing the latest spidermonkey from upstream, I can't get more than
half the developer tests to complete after an install.  I expect it has to do with path issues
and the proper invocation of ./configure - but I can't figure out what the magic incantation

I kind of wonder if anybody has actually tried a full install on Debian Stable.
