<br>Just a heads up for anyone else who uses Ubuntu. Erlang seems to have trouble loading external libraries/driver on a Ubuntu 6.10 "Egdy Eft" system. <br><br>I've just spent the better part of the weekend trying to figure out what was going wrong. First it seemed like a problem with Yaws, because erlang compiled fine and "worked". But yaws stopped with a "exec 1: setuid_drv.so :not found".
<br><br>After much reinstalling and experimenting with different versions I discovered that it was all dynamic loading of libraries that failed. For example "crypto:start()." in the erl shell crashed in a similar fashion.
<br><br>Maybe there is a simple solution to the problem, but at the moment it eludes me, so I've downgraded. The same packages and erlang-versions work perfectly fine in Ubuntu 6.06, so if you're using Ubuntu and Erlang, don't upgrade ubuntu yet.
