It’s the small things in life that make you happy !! As you know I have Ubuntu 7.10 and I installed erlang using ‘apt-get install erlang’. Unfortunately this style will not install Jinterface libraries. So the only way we can get it is by actually downloading the erlang source and building it yourself.
- Download the source from here
- Make sure you have all these libraries installed (use apt-get install ) # gcc
libssl-dev, m4, libncurses5-dev, g++, openssl, gcc, java-gcj-compat, java-gcj-compat-dev, make, unixodbc-dev
- Make sure you have Java installed and have the JAVA_HOME variable set up in your profile.
- Do a ‘./configure’ followed by a ‘make’ and ‘sudo make install’
