[erlang-questions] Error while installing new release

Thanx for the all replies. Apparently I had a wrong understanding of Erlang. In the process of creating the release file and upgrading the existing modules while the system is running, I discovered that Erlang in not Python or Perl. 

My understanding of Erlang was that whatever I installed as a default erlang release is like a perl or python interpreter. But I came to know that what I installed itself is a release of Erlang. I can pick & choose the applications I want in the final release and create a release of my own distribution like doing a Linux distribution with only the required components.

In my case I need only kernel, stdlib, inets, ibrowse, compiler and my own applications for the final release. 

I am posting this just in case if members here are not aware of it.

Cheers,

Subject: Error while installing new release


Hello all,

  I have done all the steps required to release an application. release_handler:unpack_release("2") worked fine. It create lib/erlang/releases/2 directory and files within it. 3 files are create in the directory.
start.boot, relup and myapp-2.rel

While installing the release (release_handler:install_release("2")), I am getting the error

{error,{enoent,"/usr/local/lib/erlang/releases/R12B/relup"}}

Any clue on how to solve this?

Thanx,
