undef means undefined function. So your function cmmc_db:start/0 is  
not in the path for demand loading, or if you are starting an  
embedded system it was not pre-loaded. It is worth checking that all  
the modules you want are listed in the .app file.

There is a web based tool provided with OTP which helps with this:
