We are using Redhat, so apt-get doesn't apply.
I was finally able to get this working. There was a misunderstanding on
my part about a couple of things, namely how erlang installs itself
through "make install".
Typically, I will install a product in --prefix=/usr/local/product and
then point my $PATH to it. In this case, that didn't work so well, and
I forgot to keep notes.
I configured it without wxWIDGETS, java and something else -- compiled
and installed it. Erlang creates symbolic links into /usr/bin for "erl"
etc. At this point, RabbitMQ was happy... and I was happy (lol).
I use an old, unmaintained program called "make uninstall" that records
the writes in a "make install" so I can easily remove this for an update.
I am curious, tho, if there are patches in the aforementioned
erlang-solutions.com RPM. But it was for RH6, we're on RH5.
Thanks again for everyone's input, I do appreciate it. It helped me
work through this.
