[erlang-questions] crash dump at ejabberd startup

Wed Nov 17 14:43:44 CET 2010

I meanwhile also made some test with editing the intrc file as I have gone 
through the Erlang docs regarding inetrc in the mean time:

No success unfortunately.

Additional information from the FreeBSD questions mailing list on the Erlang 
14B issue:

So, even I cannot be already sure here, the issue might be caused through 
the changes in Erlang 14B as Michael said:

If true, one might consider to make Erlang configurable regarding the IP 

On the short run, a second Port for the FreeBSD Ports Collection (using an 
older Erlang version) could ensure Erlang can be made available in FreeBSD 

Any other ideas / hints of course are still welcome.

kind regards
