Installation on Ubuntu 12.04.3 failed

Hello,

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
Minimum RAM required : 4 GB
System RAM configured : 32916608 kB

Minimum number of processors required : 4 cores
Number of processors on the system : 8 cores
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)

Thanks.

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.

Kernel 3.10.9 is installed by default on new servers with 12.04.3 by my hosting provider.
I'm not a linux kernel specialist, but it's worth checking this in your next release.
