Installation on Ubuntu 12.04.3 failed


I am trying to install couchbase-server-community_x86_64_2.0.1.deb on Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS without success.

# dpkg -i couchbase-server-community_x86_64_2.0.1.deb
ibssl0.9.8 is installed. Continue installing

Configuration of couchbase-server (2.0.1) ...
* Failed to start couchbase-server: timed out

In /opt/couchbase/var/lib/logs/start.log I found:

/opt/couchbase/bin/couchbase-server: line 76: 6535 Segmentation fault (core dumped) erl -noshell -setcookie nocookie -sname init -run init stop 2>&1 > /dev/null

Tried to install erlang package with: apt-get install erlang-base

but couchbase's reinstallation still does not work.

I have no problem on 12.04.2 LTS.

By curiosity, I tried couchbase-server-enterprise_x86_64_2.1.1.deb, and got the same errors.

Any extra packages or steps needed on 12.04.3 LTS? Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.10.9-xxxx-grs-ipv6-64 x86_64)

« Back to question.

I made several tests and could finally install couchbase on 12.04.3 LTS by replacing the kernel 3.10.9 with an "older" one (3.8.13), and it worked.
