for those who like packages, it's also possible to compile the Debian
sid Erlang source package. I did that in a clean Ubuntu 6.01.1 chroot
and put the result in my private repository. The source.list line is:

   deb http://nxdomain.org/ubuntu dapper/

Contents right now:

   erlang-x11 erlang-nox erlang-src erlang-examples erlang-mode erlang
   erlang-base erlang-dev erlang-base-hipe erlang-doc-html
   erlang-manpages (all packages have version 11.b.1-1,
   i.e. Erlang/OTP version R11B-1)

      Goodbyte, Gerd.
