Hi Tim,

I am not an erlang person. I am mainly working with RabbitMQ. I am not clear with below mail details. Could you please let me know exact details on how do I install erlang successfully on ubuntu (Right now, it is not getting installed properly and stating that ncurses not found is the reason for erlang's improper installation)

Thanks,
Preeti

If you need to build curses by hand then do so - just run ./configure --help to see what flags are required to produce a 64 bit binary. Then just point the Erlang configure script at it. Otherwise, you could just do --without-curses or whatever when building Erlang, but personally I'd want (n)curses enabled.

Personally I'd suggest you build it by hand from sources, or use kerl and pass KERL_CONFIGURE_OPTS based on the install documentation if you prefer.

I actually followed the exact steps illustrated in the link you shared below (GNU/LINUX) on ubuntu.


But, when I executed below command, I got a message saying corresponding libraries not found to install. Since those libraries did not install well, erlang installation also showed an error at the end saying - curses library not found. So, rabbitmq installation failed!


What i need is proper detailed commands to install below libraries on ubuntu x86-64 machine configuration!

Thanks,
Preeti
sudo apt-get install build-essential libncurses5-dev openssl libssl-dev

And reading http://wiki.basho.com/Installing-Erlang.html might help too.

Have you tried installing from sources? It sounds like perhaps the ./configure script needs to know --with-curses (or whatever the actual switch is to point to the ncurses you've installed) and/or the architecture you're installing for one isn't compatible with the other.



If you want detailed assistance, please provide a bit more information about *how* you're trying to install and what is going wrong (like error messages etc).
Also, what version of Ubuntu are you using and do you have the build-essential packages installed?



Cheers,
Tim

Hi

I am struggling since many days to install RabbitMQ on Ubuntu Machine (X86-64)


Now, Erlang is a pre-requisite for Installing RabbitMQ

When I try to Install Erlang, I get an error message saying - Ncurses library is not installed.

I tried installing ncurses library in multiple ways using sudo apt-get commands. It does not happen and so I am not able to install erlang successfully




Can anyone provide me a list of detailed steps to be able to install erlang version 14 on an ubuntu machine?

Thanks,
Preeti
