Looks good on paper, my first try results in

Crash dump was written to: erl_crash.dump
init terminating in do_boot()

without any understandable error message. Should try CouchDB.

PS: Rebuilding everything on Debian from source. We'll see
PPS: Didn't help 🙁

PPPS: CouchDB won't compile, it's not finding an Erlang kernel header file. This is why I love Java and hate C. I forgot how painful compiling and installing builds with make and .h-files was.

PPPPS: Found a version which did compile. Java API doesn't work.

PPPPPS: Back to MySQL which works. There seems a lot work needed to dethrone MySQL

PPPPPPS: Tried the same with Ubuntu 8 without success
