Sergey: I believe this is caused by a problem with the new packaging. Amazon Linux doesn't install an event backend by default for libcouchbase. Can you look into this?
Comment by Jeff Minard [ 29/Oct/12 ]
I had the same in centos5. Base on your suggestion Matt, I ran

    sudo yum install libcouchbase2-libevent.x86_64

and the error went away.

Jeff Minard:

I currently have

 when I try install that I get this error:

           Requires: libevent-1.4.so.2()(64bit)
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Does anyone know where to get this file as I cannot seem to locate it.

Could you please point where amazon said that amazon latest ami is centos 5.5? We doesn't build RPMs for amazon AMI. You should install libcouchbase from sources.
Comment by Sergey Avseyev [ 30/Oct/12 ]
You should use only official centos packages (5.5 for example has only libevent1)

curl -s http://vault.centos.org/5.5/os/i386/CentOS/ | grep libevent
Comment by Matt Ingenthron [ 16/Nov/12 ]
Sergey: you marked this one as resolved, but did not indicate what the resolution was. Is the resolution "workaround, please use libevent1?".

Please clarify and change the state.
Comment by Sergey Avseyev [ 20/Nov/12 ]
Yes, all RPM systems where we are building _binary_ packages have only libevent1, therefore if someone decided to install libevent2, he should either install libcouchbase from tarball, or make his own RPM packages using 'make dist-rpm' target
